[Lynx-dev] Hide lynx_bookmarks.html

Hey all,

By default lynx creates a 'lynx_bookmarks.html' file.  This then shows
up in one's directory listings, though I rarely need to be reminded of
its existence.

I feel it would be nice if it were hidden by default.  The attached
patch implements that; I would be very grateful if it or something
similar were applied to the next release.

Patch is against 2.8.8dev16.

Subject: [PATCH] Add a leading dot to "lynx_bookmarks.html".

Prevents it from cluttering up one's $HOME.
