In my tracking of the use of this, my record stands at 1 submission.
It seems to me that even the developers prefer the output from trace.
Previously, Tom used to ask for people to send config.*, but of course
those files are only available to the person who does the compiling.

Should this line be deleted? 

How useful is this information coming from a general user who has no idea
what the output means?   (I certainly didn't bother to translate it for our
site.)  If you really want someone to send a copy of that page, I think you
at least ought to suggest a way for them to do that, i.e., mention mailing
from the P)rint Menu.  Do you really want a bunch of those coming to lynx-dev?
It might be more efficient to ask for the information that is pertinent.
