you need both in the order "-L... -l...".  this way you can switch
between prefered directories, but in general it's a nuisance.

that's what it does to me.  about the gettext:  i don't know.  i
always disable nls, because i want consistent (error) messages.

i'll send it right a way.

ahh...  i see lynx.old{lss,cfg}.  i didn't notice.

i'm not sure.  here on freebsd this helps in case the dynamic linker
doesn't find some libs.  i/you can check this using "ldconfig -vr",
which returns all libs known to the system.  the output shows both GNU
giconv and freebsd's own iconv, in that order, but this has been that
way even before building lynx.  i had experimented with setting
LDFLAGS and LIBS and CPPFLAGS before the ./configure, but LIBS is what
it needed.

i remember you mentioning this, but i was talking only about the new
colors.  i think you don't need to change anything with the
configuration, but a tip on how to actually use the default colors as
set by an [ax]term was nice.  this had worked perfectly before.  i
have not yet tried to vary the available settings.
