Good point, I'm thinking CONFIG_EMBEDDED and
CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE to start with.

It would be useful to have lynx/links as a backup, but most people
prefer a graphical browser for everyday use. Conceivably one could run
X to just launch a single fullscreen browser window and no window
manager, if X were absolutely needed for some reason.
