It appears, lynx is using its own bundled version of libwww. The bundled version is rather old, and a much newer one is available from . Its most recent version is 5.4.0, and was released in 2002. Quite stable, and can not be dismissed as a "moving target".

Are there reasons _not_ to use the up-to-date W3's implementation? It would require some catching up in code and makefiles, but it would be a good thing. Libwww is used for a number of things on a typical computer, and there is no reason for lynx to build its own private copy, IMHO.

What do you think? Thanks!
