Looking at this once again (this time with a clear head), the problem
with the French translation not switching character sets had nothing
to do with the case of the charset specified in the .po file. The .mo
file that didn't work was created from the fr.po file that was in
lynx2.8.5dev.8 and previous. The file that works was created from the
fr.po file in lynx2.8.5dev.9 and later. The difference between the two
is the "#, fuzzy" directive in the header of the earlier file. When
this is present, the DOS port of lynx is unable to make the conversion
of character set. When it is absent, the conversion works well. I
don't understand why this makes a difference. I will report this to
the maintainer of the DOS ports of gettext/libiconv.

Once again, my apologies for posting a problem report and patch that
wasn't tested properly.
