The same risk is also present in the current distribution: if someone
installing lynx omits "make install-help", the COOKIE_JAR, KEYMAP etc.
internal pages have broken hypertext links to their appropriate help

The bottom line is that the proper installation procedure is a must for
those who want to benefit from the context-oriented help.
