lynx-dev Question from a comment in the lynx.cfg file

The lynx.cfg file states:

# XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND will be used as a default in src/HTInit.c
# for viewing image content types when the DECW$DISPLAY logical
# is set.  Make it the foreign command for your system's X image
# viewer (commonly, "xv").  It can be anything that will handle GIF,  
# TIFF and other popular image formats.  Freeware ports of xv for
# VMS are available in the and
# subdirectories.

But xv is not a freeware package, and the URL returns
                                                The requested URL was not found

                        The requested URL was not found
   HTTP status code: 404

In fact, in the Unix paragraph on XLOADIMAGE_COMMAND, xv is referred to as
shareware.  Perhaps that should be how it is referenced here?

Since I don't use VMS, I don't know whether there is something special
about this particular release of the program.
