Yes. If awk were to be important to using lynx, instructions on how to
set it up would have to be in the README file. Precompiled binaries
are readily available for DOS. I (and others who distribute the
binary) would probably want to include the binary with lynx in the
package (as I already do with sed, mv, cat, etc.).
