I'll tell you what they are:  You are using a win32s compiler that only
recognizes 8_3 file names, and the lynx source uses long file names.
The other point is that most or all win32s compilers also support LARGE
model code, which should be adequate for a compile of lynx after the
included .h files longer than 8_3 have been edited.

I should also mention that tcl/tk is a win32s project.  If they can do it,
so can lynx.
