    Does its creation date and time give you any clues?

No.  I wish they did.  I know is that I used W3M mode to view
BzrForEmacsDevs and BzrQuickStartForEmacsDevs, but that's all.
W3M mode was in Emacs.  It is very strange.  `share' should not
be part of trunk at all, not the master or a branch.

FWIW: did you ever happen to try the --with-emacs option to emacs-w3m's configure script? In my testing just now, I found that if I passed a path to an emacs binary still in the source tree rather than an installed emacs, e.g.

./configure --with-emacs=/usr/local/src/emacs/src/emacs

it'll detect and use the emacs source tree as the prefix.

, not /usr/local - and install to /usr/local/src/emacs/share/emacs/site-lisp/w3m/

Obviously, if you were to explicitly do
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/src/emacs/
it'll end up there too, but the --with-emacs behaviour
is a little sneakier - if you, say, thought you could use --with-emacs to use a freshly built but not yet installed emacs to build emacs-w3m, and it would still install to the default /usr/local/ prefix, well, it doesn't.
