When 3.9.1 came out, I've probably been the first to complain about
gtkhtml2 not being there any more. I did that because I was used to it, and
because long ago, Fancy had caused some crashes when viewing some HTML,
when gtkhtml2 was Ok.
But that was years ago... Of course, when something's not working and
you've some replacement, why would I have made tests with each new
version ? I didn't, and was "forced" to Fancy with 3.9.1... which refused
to compile on my machine ;)

But, you can still compile gtkhtml2 with 3.9.1, that works too !!! And
that's what I did first to make sure I had a working Claws 3.9.1 with me !

Anyway, I wanted to be using something supported by the core dev team, and
I did the required steps to understand the problem. And I'm now using Fancy
with great pleasure... but I use Claws because it's mainly a
_TEXT_-oriented mail client...

So, my main comment/suggestion is that one: Dev team, it'd be great to have,
at the end of the configure script, a list of the missing dependancies per
plugin, to have a better understanding of the problem, instead of having to
dig the 1000+ lines of text produced by configure.

And yes, please keep up the good work, Claws really rocks !
