It's a sane default setting. Epylog has an option of generating
text-only reports (as opposed to just HTML reports), but to go from
html to text it requires a lynx-compatible browser, like elinks, w3m,
or, well, lynx. By default, only HTML reports are generated, which is
why there is no elinks dependency in the RPM, but should folks desire
to have text reports, they are much more likely to have elinks
installed than lynx or w3m. Besides, without that option specified,
the configure script will try to find it on the system and error out
if neither lynx, links, nor w3m are found (which is probably a silly
behavior in itself, I'll look into modifying that).
