The addition of `umask 022' to the tar commands in `2.8.8rel.2.patch' still
doesn't set the correct owners+permissions for the files in share/lynx_doc/.
because the 1st tar cmd. picks up the owners/permissions for those files
from when the source tarball was extracted--ie. when the umask and user/grp
could have been anything:

$ ls -l /opt/lynx/share/lynx_doc
total 624

What's needed, is to change this line in the install-doc rule in `':

-$(SHELL) -c 'case `id|sed -e "s/(.*//"` in uid=0) chown -R root $(DOCDIR);; 

to this:

-$(SHELL) -c 'case `id|sed -e "s/(.*//"` in uid=0) chown -R root.root 
$(DOCDIR);; esac'

and add a couple of additional commands in there--something along the lines of:

find $(DOCDIR) -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 755
find $(DOCDIR) -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 644
