It actually says:
Disable Sprite support - DataTypes can handle these.
which is rather different!
Yep, it's an Amiga-specific build change affecting the non-RISC OS Sprite
loader. There is no impact on RISC OS whatsoever.
Sprites still load.
They do on the Amiga build too, I've just switched over to using the
fallback decoder (DataTypes). For those who are interested, DataTypes are
an OS plug-in system for various filetypes - the Sprite DataType uses the
same base code as NetSurf's non-RISC OS built-in support. Basically I'm
saving a few kilobytes by taking it out of the main executable, as it is
not something which is commonly used here.
