Thanks.  FWIW, one can also get w3m from MacPorts.  I don't know
anything about homebrew (it may be The Bomb), but didn't really want to
configure YA package manager...

With that, the emacs-w3m from Jeff's pointer worked fine *BUT* for
Aquamacs 2.1 you have to pull it from CVS --- none of the versions
available as a tarball is compatible with emacs 23.

It was great to get this to work, since I use org-mode extensively, and
none of the "stuff URLs into org-mode from browser" (org-protocol)
methods work on Mac OSX, AFAICT.
