Motivation for this change

elinks doesn't build at the moment, because it depends on a spidermonkey version marked as insecure. (I don't know who changed the dependency to spidermonkey_38; the only supported version is 17.)

Also: new upstream release. According to the description, we're already tracking the felinks fork. Now we're fetching the github release directly instead of fetching the debian sources.

I've also disabled javascript support because we do not package spidermonkey 17. Even if we did, it's outdated and shouldn't be used in a web browser. Upstream is working on this: rkd77/elinks#29
Closes #71063
