Is there any advantage to retaining 0.90 if we have links2?
I figured out that if I type links it tries to load links2 -g (graphical)
and links2 loads links2 nongraphically. Probably it would be too
complicated (if not impossible) for your links2.tgz package to change
profile and the icewm menu to use links2, and offer the options of

Some of our computers don't display beyond 640. It sounds like you are
not including 1024 because you cannot test programs with it.

File a bug report? I might try writing them about this.
The laptop I was going to put BL3 on does not do 16-bit color, only 4-bit
(maybe also 8-bit and I need to get xsvga to work).
It is the combination of Abiword needing at least 8-bit and Xvesa not
doing 8-bit that is causing problems.
