Thanks. I looked at this and it did not seem at first glance that
limiting the character set support would save significantly. I'm looking
to embedded lynx on a zipit wireless device which has very limited
flash. Lynx runs fine if it is copied down after boot or run from an NFS
mount. I wanted to squeeze it into the initrd so it would be there on
boot. I'll look into other options.

The topic hasn't come up recently - I recall that was the motivation
for allowing a subset of the character-set support to be compiled in.
