I do hope all these problems that Larry V. is finding get
fixed in the configure etc, and NOT just by some instructions
"for Solaris get this, and this, and be sure to do this, and
that, hand hack these lines in the makefile, etc, etc" --

hopefully so that making on solaris is FULLY AUTOMATIC.


I myself am simply WAITING until Larry, by his emails to
the list, seems satisfied, BEFORE I go re-download a fresh &
fixed version and try it on MY sparc/solaris.

Seeing so many problems from larry, I haven't even TRIED
to compile the version I downloaded two weeks ago...

--- re "prefix":

By the way, like lots of people, I will have to use "prefix="
somewhere, since, like with lots of people, I followed sun's
(implicit) instructions and made all these various file-systems,
and now there's not enough room to install anything on /usr/local.

(Yes, I now know better: have maybe just TWO filesystems:
root, and one for everything else; that's it.  Will do it that
way when I install solaris 2.7, which just arrived two days
ago.  Will do this in what, 6 months?  (safety))

But please add instructions and hints re this PREFIX stuff,
eg hints and tricks via symbolic links in /usr/local, etc.



PS: what a NEAT program this lynx is -- and what a LOT of HARD
work you guys are doing.  And Hooray, too, that Klaus is back,
and seems REALLY eager to work!
