lynx-dev Lynx cannot be installed from RPM on MkLinux DR3

I wanted to install lynx in my system ( Linux localhost.localdomain 
 (GENERIC #7) ENLEVEL #50 Wed Mar 3 22:00:33 CST 1999 ppc unknown )

using command 

rpm --rebuild lynx-2.8-1.src.rpm

The command failed, for the following reason: could not guess the host type.
I examined the file config.guess and I suggest the following patch:

(rcsdiff /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-1/config.guess)
RCS file: /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-1/RCS/config.guess,v
retrieving revision 2.8
diff -r2.8 /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/lynx2-8-1/config.guess
<         elf32ppc)   echo "powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu"              ; exit -1 ;;
>         elf32ppc*)  echo "powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu"              ; exit -1 ;;

I had to add this asterisk because the default emulation of my link designer is 

Besides, my compiler gcc version 2.95.2 19990906 (prerelease) caused the system 
to bust
when compiling the file src/LYMainLoop.c because it consumed all available 
memory (60MB).
I had to disable optimization for that file.

I have a question: now that I installed Lynx, how can I correct and install the 
package to rpm?
Because lynx is installed but rpm does not know about it. I cannot perform the 
using rpm because my correction would be replaced.

My connection to Internet is dialup, so please reply to
