Joshua - 

  My port is distributed with the GNU license, as is the rest of the
Lynx source code, so you are encouraged to distribute it.  We build
Win32 executables because most Windows users don't have compilers.

  The current source version is 2.8.5dev5 (I'm losing track).  I haven't
built a Win32 executable since near the end of the 2.8.4 cycle; that
would be the latest I have.  Though it was from the "pre" release
timeframe, it's the one I'd recommend.

  Please share your experiences with Lynx on WinXP, particularly any
Internet setup challenges.
