I have just installed lynx 2.8.7dev.7 on my Mac, specifying the IPv6
option for the configuration:

 ./configure --enable-ipv6 --prefix=/usr/local/lynx

Everything builds and installs. I am able to connect to:

 lynx "";

But if I specify the valid IPv6 URL, which works with Safari:

 lynx "http://[::1]/";

I get the error:

 Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

 lynx: Can't access startfile http://[/

This would like a URL parsing issue. Can anyone confirm the problem?

lynx supports IPv6 internally - should be able to connect to a host using DNS or a properly constructed hosts file, but doesn't implement the literals.

(This is known - patches welcome ;-)
