Downloading a 3.2GB DVD iso I see

Read 1558843 of 2097151 KiB of data, 2767 KiB/sec.

Am I seeing a system limit (FreeBSD) on what it thinks can be downloaded as a file, or do I have to tell lynx something to report the actual size?

It's not implemented (that is, ensuring that 32-bit unsigned long sizes
are reported as such).  lynx isn't using long-long anywhere, so 4Gb would
be the highest value that it can report.

...the large-file support in lynx should allow you to _download_ that (or larger) DVD. I haven't studied to see how much work it would be to support the reporting aspect.
