hmm - it was so obvious...

I was looking at "printw".  The text on that page was run together.  Odd,
but my saved page doesn't show that.  But I can repeat it by going down
the same path.  I went to, asked for
        "x/open" printw
and got this result:
   Searched the web for "x/open" printw.  Results 1 - 10 of about 320.         0
                                          Search took 0.37 seconds.            0

I selected the "X/Open Curses Issue 4, Version 2 - Index" link, which took
me to the page which is garbled, e.g.,
     N                                                                         a

But checking, I see the copy of lynx I'm running is against the Debian stable
copy of ncursesw (I'm running on a new install).  Comparing with the
non-ncursesw flavor, I don't see the page garbled.  So it doesn't appear to be
a lynx bug (perhaps - but the only way I'll find out is to statically link it
against my current ncursesw - I don't recall a fix that applies to POSIX locale
