Reboot is not a repair technique!!!!
The problem is that the optimizer chokes on LYmainloop.c (I had the
same problem on my Alpha last week). Even if you reboot, the compiler won't
eat the file :-)
Fix? Well, if you know how to do it, you can compile LYmainloop.c by hand
without the -O flags (= look at the line the 'make' produces for
LYmainloop.c, be in the right directory, type the same line _without_ the -O
switches and hit return. Then go back to the original directory and start
'make' again). It worked for me, maybe it will for you :-)

Longterm fix: The developers of lynx shoudl strip down LYmainloop.c a bit or
change the make-rule for OSF/1.  Regards,
