I noticed something else strange while validating the version I was

indicates to me that the file "lynx2.8.7.tar.bz2" is referring to
rel.1 instead of rel.2.

that might be just my error in setting up the site.

That could very well be the culprit then.  The filenames are quite
similar and it could have just been a symlink typo.

yes - I put it together from mirrors and backups.  Currently my local
backup has all of the stuff that's web- or ftp-visible, plus the source/build tree, so it would be more straightforward to restore it
if the server died again. is someone else (I've no control over that).

Good to know.  I always thought it was a bit strange when came into existance as it just immediately points to
the isc site anyway.

as I recall it, it's been around since the late 1990s, around the time
lynx was still hosted on slcc
