I don't know if anyone maintains the SLang port, but I compile the
cygwin port of lynx with both ncurses and slang. It works fine for
me using either. The arrow keys all work. This is with 2.8.4dev.10
as the last build that I did. I have never tried to compile with
MingW32. I would check to be sure that you compiled slang correctly.
It does not use the configure script, but creates the makefile from
the master makefile (I think in separate subdirectory). I also looked
at a PDCurses build, but PDCurses doesn't seem fully functional under
cygwin. The slang port doesn't require a termcap or terminfo database.
The ncurses version of the cygwin port doesn't display properly
with the cygwin terminfo description that comes with ncurses, but
seems to do fine with the cygwin termcap that comes with the current
distribution of cygwin.
