I finally got around to compiling lynx2.8.6dev.18 on DOS and MingW
(using patch dev.18c). The DOS DJGPP compilation seemed to go fine,
but the MingW compilation had the same problem as did dev.17, where
the executable file exits immediately after being invoked (due to
changes in the PDCurses interface). The patch that I posted in January
fixes the problem, but hasn't been incorporated in the code yet

thanks - I only recall seeing some email with a fix for pdcurses itself.

PDCurses wasn't broken -- Lynx was. Specifically, it made an implicit assumption
about the value of ERR. My patch just makes it explicit.

I don't actually like my patch, but it was the minimum change I could make
without disrupting anything else. What I'd really prefer would be a massive
rewrite of Lynx's keyboard handling. Maybe I'll try that one of these days...

I'd like to (rewrite it) also, but at the moment just want bug-fixes.
There are a few regressions from 2.8.5 which are blocking a new release...
