I think I'll take back that offer for a make16.bat.  Unfortunately,
the UCDomap.c code, among others, overwhelms the capacity of the BC4.52
16-bit compiler.  It generates table overflows.  I am going to have to dig
a bit to find a pre-chartrans version of lynx if I am going to port it to
any 16-bit system.  Pity that the chartrans code was not left as a 
configure option in the latest releases, or you would have been able to
generate an up-to-date lynx for 16-bit (I mean 3.0 and later) Windows,
and something quite similar for old-fashioned Dos.
