See the patch I posted today regarding this error. It seems to be due
to newterm() always returning NULL, and was triggered by PDCurses 2.7
now defining delscreen(). As for the other problem with the error
code, I got a suggested patch for lynx from William McBrine, the new
maintainer of PDCurses. I haven't had a chance to build a MingW lynx
yet, to see how well this works, but I hope to do so within a few
days. In any case, attached is the patch from William McBrine.
