that's probably 1.9.9e or 1.9.8a

1.9.9g or 4.0 are preferred, since there are fixes to the combining of
colors in those versions.  Also (I've more testing, as usual) 4.0 is
probably what you really want, since Lynx does support curses-style resizing
of the display (e.g., exit from curses to reinitialize the display size).
I dropped the previous implementation (because it relied on reexecuting
initscr(), which is prohibited by the XSI curses specification), and
reimplemented it for 4.0.

ncurses doesn't compile-in a version number.  I've a to-do item (probably
for 4.1) to compile-in the RCS identifiers (as a configuration option).
Though that may not be what you want.
