a quick look at this shows some differences - iirc, I kept the same filenames
as the hippo ones, though I rewrote the process for creating the pages.
These filenames are different (it's been a while since I looked at the
page, and don't recall the history page).

something like that's on my to-do list for dev.18 (to make the autoconf'd
lynx.cfg point to the copy that is installed locally).  The hippo pages were
out of date anyway.

I think it's a bug.
