I'm not sure why you're trying to compile Xidel from (the wrong) source when you can easily grab binaries from https://sourceforge.net/projects/videlibri/files/Xidel/ (binaries from the development map are recommended).

But if you insist...

> The source history is stored in a mercurial repository <https://sourceforge.net/p/videlibri/code/ci/tip/tree/> together with the VideLibri source and dependencies, licensed as GPLv3+. There are mirrors on GitHub <https://github.com/benibela/xidel/> and GitLab <https://gitlab.com/benito/xidel>. _These mirrors have the Xidel source only_, in order to compile it you need to download the dependencies from their own repositories first. Or use the above source tarball, which also contains dependencies.

tarball --> programs/internet/xidel/README.md <https://sourceforge.net/p/videlibri/code/ci/default/tree/programs/internet/xidel/README.md>:
> You can compile it by calling build.sh

$ curl -OL "https://sourceforge.net/projects/videlibri/files/Xidel/Xidel%20development/xidel-"

$ tar -xf xidel-

$ xidel- -s

This should be enough.
However, r8285 is not the latest dev-build. r8308 is, but... it's missing a dependency <https://github.com/benibela/xidel/issues/83>. :D
