I don't understand this syntax (looks like a manually-constructed
Makefile), but maybe you need to explicitly compile in the path
to your compiled catalogue file.  On Unix using the configure script,
that's done with the "--with-nls-datadir=" option.
In your case "--with-nls-datadir=g:\MingW32\share".

DITTO!!!!  (And practically all developers/packagers ram their favorite
version of it down your throat.)

Probably okay.

I don't know what this is.  If $LYNX_LOCALEDIR is what is set by
--with-nls-datadir, then try removing the final "\locale".

Looks good.

Dextrous fingers?  (like for picking lice out of matted hair)

Good luck.
