Giving up on mmap on emscripten after it worked fine for one year would not
be very constructive. I already spend quite a bit of time investigating why 
ellinit("11a1") did not work anymore.

At the very least, the difference of speed and behaviour of
--disable-mmap and --enable-mmap on emscripten would need to be clearly
