lynx, tack, mc

I fixed lynx and tack on Saturday, will get around to mc "soon".
I uploaded a new tack, and both lynx/tack changes are visible
in my snapshots on github:

Well, my impression is that due to the Debian release schedule, there'd
be no immediate change to ncurses (or the others), and that I'd have a
new lynx patch out before that happened.

(I'd rather be doing productive work on the 64-bit windows ports of
lynx, vile, but distractions occur - this particular change is in support
of the latter).

That's all that I happened to think of.  It's a binary-compatible change
(so applications should work without recompiling).
