This version works with BL2 and SW91 glibc 2.3.2. Instead of installing
from scratch you can copy the binary to /usr/local/bin (instead of
/usr/bin) and symlink it to lynx (save the old one under a different name
if you want), then move or copy lynx.lss and lynx.cfg from /usr/lib to
/usr/lib/lynx (where I should have put them in the first place when
Mine is completely static and the executable is 1.269MB.
This one is 1.225MB and requres glibc, ld-linux, libz, libncurses,
libcrypto, libssl, libbz2 and libgpm (mine did not do mouse or bz2).
The package is 1.9MB and downloads at 5K from Belgium at 9PM EST.

I might leave my other computers with 2.2.5.
