It can be turned on by default in either of these locations :

- texmf.cnf (find the right one, probably in $VARTEMXF/web2c)

% Allow TeX, eTeX, Omega to include `src:' specials in the dvi file.
% These specials are used by viewers to jump from the viewer into
% the editor at the right page/lineno.
% Possible values : none auto cr display hbox math par parend vbox
src_specials.pdftex = none
src_specials = auto

and comment both lines above.

- Look into your WinEdt configuration, unfotunately I'm of not help here
except that I have grep'ed among all WinEdt files (in c:\Program
Files\WinEdt Team\WinEdt\) and found a couple of occurences of the
'--src' string.

There doesn't seem to be a clean way to implement these specials. This
side effect will be removed with the next version.
