No, I think you should be able to follow those links if you are using the
spider.pl program in the development version. I haven't tried it, but that
program uses the %HTML::Tagset::linkElements hash (from that perl module)
to extract out links, and <area> is defined in that hash.
But, you must tell the spider.pl program that you want to extract links
from <area> tags. perldoc spider.pl says:
This optional tag is a reference to an array of tags.
Only links found in these tags will be extracted. The
default is to only extract links from `a' tags.
So you should be able to specify
link_tags => [qw/ a frame area /],
in the config file for spider.pl and it will extract links for those three

Oh, right, the http method won't find those, although it would probably be
easy enough to modify swishspider to do so.
