The "-noblat" option allows the use of the free "sendmail" program for
Windows, written by Nigel Ellis. It is available packaged with Wayne
Buttles binary of lynx. It also probably works with Nigels updated
shareware version (now called bcwmail), available from his website at

The default blat that is supported is the BLATJ, Japanese version. It
is available from Hiroyuki Senshu, packaged with the lynx binary. The
compilation define "USE_ALT_BLAT_MAILER" indicates the use of BLAT
rather than BLATJ.

Do we need to put this information in the documentation that comes
with the lynx source code somewhere (perhaps in INSTALLATION)?
