Thanks: it's compiled, installed & seems to be working ok.
I like the new cfg option to suppress the R/L margins.
I have a note that Steph Caunter had found some bugs there
I'm currently able to push lynx toward the top of my stack,
am thinking I might get 2.8.6 closed out this month...

Once more, may I urge you to adopt a numbering system
more in tune with those used by other projects.
The "stable" version offered by Gentoo is 2.8.5 (2003 ?  2002 ? ... );
the "testing" version is 2.8.6_pre18 (isn't that a record for "pre" ?).

no - based on what you're saying, GenToo's altering the Lynx version from 2.8.6dev.18 to 2.8.6pre.18, which is incorrect.

Make the next version 2.9.0 , then 2.9.1 ... 18 (or wherever it gets to),
then 2.10.0 (instead of 2.8.7).  It might encourage distros like Gentoo
to update their offerings more frequently.  Of course, I mix my own.
