Hi all,

I'm not sure if this configure option works correctly or not.
If I compile lynx with --enable-gnutls-compat and without
--with-gnutls=/usr it looks lynx binary is same as the one
compiled with --without-gnutls.

I'll check (on my home machine - don't have gnutls at hand this moment).

On my home machine I do get the result I expected.
Here are the two ldd outputs:

ldd lynx =>  (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7fc0000) => /lib/ (0xb7f98000) => /usr/local/ncurses/lib/ (0xb7f4f000) => /lib/ (0xb7f4b000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7f40000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7ec7000) => /lib/ (0xb7e95000) => /lib/ (0xb7d60000)

        /lib/ (0xb7fe0000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7cfc000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7cf8000)

If I recall properly, you've been compiling lynx with gnutls - so it
should "just work".

I used something like

        configure --without-ssl --with-gnutls

to use the raw gnutls interface, and

        configure --without-ssl --with-gnutls --enable-gnutls-compat

to use gnutls with the openssl compatibility library.

Just reading the source, I do see a cut/paste error in the help-message
(the --enable-gnutls-compat's message says "--with-gnutls").

If I compile lynx with --enable-gnutls-compat and
--with-gnutls=/usr it looks lynx binary is same as the one
compiled with --with-gnutls=/usr and without

How do I misunderstand?
