The file lynx.cfg still refers to /usr/local/lib as the default location for lynx.cfg, but I see 2.8.6rel1/2.8.7dev1 installs into /usr/local/etc (per CHANGES 2.8.6pre.2).

The configure script also mentions /usr/local/lib where /usr/local/etc would be appropriate.

Hopefully this post will suffice, but any upgrader from 2.8.5 to 2.8.6 should know that the old lynx.cfg in the old default /usr/local/lib needs to get copied over to /usr/local/etc.

hmm - I should have made the scripting for picking up customizations look there. I hadn't noticed, since I modified my configure options for lynx
to keep the files in the same location, e.g.,

        configure --sysconfdir=/usr/local/lib --datadir=/usr/local/lib

I expect most packagers will do something equivalent...

I grumbled about this before the change, and while I can get used to anything, as far as this alteration of the default longtime location for the lynx master config file is concerned, I'm not there yet.
