^^^what does this 'cp' mean?
why Makefile from the top directory? (from pre-autoconf era).
why only for UNIX? It is defined for any platform.
Two lines above should read:
Uploaders can be defined if lynx compiled with DIRED_SUPPORT.

Perhaps the original variant should be left in place:
its explanation looks more readable than in
printer/downloader/uploader unified form.
Few starting lines should be removed (obsolete/misleading):
