this is an IMPORTANT problem, because all of us solaris users
(on sun service) just one week ago received Solaris 7, and
many lynx-users will likely be installing it soon.
Solaris, for the last several years, has had this neat
"package" concept that makes installing (and de-installing)
Perhaps someone who knows how AND who has access to solaris
(Larry V?) could, at major releases (ie, not very often),
could produce a .pkg-file for solaris-whatever (whatever he
has access to, maybe 2.5.1, 2.6, and (soon?) 2.7), and stuff
those on the download-site? (or somehow get the guys at
sun to add it to their package-site).
