I see the problem. I compiled Lynx on both Cygwin 1.3.10 (with
GCC 2.95.3-5) and Windows XP Professional (with Borland C++


If I compile with --with-zlib it uses the library to uncompress
the files. If I don't it uses gzip (and I need ash installed).

Windows XP Professional:

I compiled without --with-zlib and it failed with such sites. I
think it works if you have gzip for Windows.

Question: Is there any way to make Lynx not send
'Accept-Encoding: gzip, compress' and not use gzip if I don't
compile with --with-zlib ?

BTW, I compiled OpenSSH 0.9.6d with Borland C++ but don't know
how to compile zlib. Makefile.b32 and Makefile.bor don't work.
