Linux; and OS/2 (__EMX__) apparently also makes some use of it.
I don't understand how - it seems the function that *does*
something, UCChangeTerminalCodepage, only can get called if
LINUX is defined.)

Most of the relevant code is ifdef'd with
   #ifdef LINUX

The only thing that can happen if neither LINUX nor __EMX__ is defined
is the following statement:

   CTRACE((tfp, "UCChangeTerminalCodepage: Called, but not implemented!"));

but even that won't happen since the function won't get called...
so it's worthless (but harmless) to define EXP_CHARTRANS_AUTOSWITCH
if you're on a system that doesn't have LINUX nor __EMX__ defined.
..unless vtailor changes something in his code in this respect.

?? It's still in the lynx2.8.3dev.14.tar.bz2 I downloaded.
