presumably  --disable-options-menu :  --enable-options-menu  isn't needed;
the blurbs in  INSTALLATION  &  lynx.cfg  need minor revisions;
 EXP_FORMS_OPTIONS  needs changing to  NO_OPTIONS_MENU  everywhere;
default default -- is no configure switch or change in  lynx.cfg  --
should be to enable the options form, NOT the old menu (as now).

i can provide patches for the 1st  3  of these,
but at least need pointing to the right place to change the 4th.

indeed, do we still need the option of disabling the menu?
someone like NHE with physical machine constraints?
shouldn't we be preparing to abolish the menu with 2-8-2 ?
