        Borland will work.  I personally did not use the zlib, but for
the pdcurses, you need to compile a pdcurses.lib file using the Borland
compiler.  Once you have the pdcurses.lib file, make a sub directory in
the Lynx code ( \curses) and place the lib file there.  Lynx needs it
here so that it can be found at run time.

        For this problem, I also compiled my own makeuctb.exe.  Using
the Borland compiler, include the appropriate files from the entire
directory and then compile.  Once completed, you should run
makeuctb.exe, which will generate a multitude of .h files that Lynx also
needs.  Take a look at the .h files after they are created and make sure
you've got something in them.  At first, my .h files were "empty", which
is the reason I compiled my own makeuctb.exe.

        I think I already answered this one.
