The problem occurs when configure causes something to be
defined as nothing in lynx_cfg.h:

    /* #undef _ALL_SOURCE */
    /* #undef const */
    #define inline             /* This is the culprit */ 
    /* #undef mode_t */
    /* #undef off_t */ transforms this to:

        { "ZCAT_PATH", "/mvsoeecc/tools/bin/zcat" },
        { "ZIP_PATH", "/mvsoeecc/sppg/bin/zip" },
        { "inline" },                                  /* The culprit, again */
        { "lstat", "stat" },

Which the compiler evidently interprets as:

        { "ZCAT_PATH", "/mvsoeecc/tools/bin/zcat" },
        { "ZIP_PATH", "/mvsoeecc/sppg/bin/zip" },
        { "inline", NULL  },                           /* The culprit, again */
        { "lstat", "stat" },
and LYShowInfo gets a SIGSEGV on the NULL and the page
never gets built.

Larry's patch and mine both supply a default value instead of
the NULL at execution time.  It would generate a slightly
smaller executable if this were done in, but I
was daunted by the sed script.
