Thanks Mark, All

for the responses.

The make went fine after I put the directory for ar in my path (i never heard of ar before) but when I tried to run it it blew up on a message of
Configuration file /opt/LYNX271/lib/lynx.cfg not available.

Since it's quite apparent from all your comments that I have an older version of Lynx I'm just going to start over with a newer one.

Again...thanks all for the was much appreciated.

ar is in /usr/ccs/bin.  You should have /usr/ccs/bin in your PATH if you
intend on doing development work or building programs (like Lynx) from

That's because the ar command is supposed to create it.

I haven't seen "make platform" used to build Lynx in quite some time - "sh
configure && make" does the trick now.  Be sure you have the most up-to-date
sources (2.8.3) from
