To test it:

git clone git at github.com:PerBothner/DomTerm.git
# May needs some prerequisite packages.  For example
# if on Fedora: sudo dnf install json-c json-c-devel openssl-dev
cd DomTerm
./configure --with-libwebsockets=/path/to/libwebsockets/build --without-qtwebengine --without-java
bin/domterm --no-daemonize --browser

(The --no-daemonize makes it easier to see debugging output
or run domterm under gdb.)

In contrast, adding to --enable-compiled-in-resources to configure works:

./configure --with-libwebsockets=/home/bothner/Software/libwebsockets/build --without-qtwebengine --without-java --enable-compiled-in-resources
make clean
bin/domterm --no-daemonize --browser
