=)information page is not the best place for that links, but where is a
better one?

1) It is a reasonable thing to have a link to a recent version depositary
next to the version/date information _somewhere_ in a noticeable place
in lynx to encourage users to upgrade. Lot of querries to lynx-dev prove
the need of this.

2) =)information page had no links before. So we got no additional
complexity for user to navigate across the "important links" and new
one, informational.

3) When moved to the options menu, old-fashion menu users will lack the
functionality. Is that you want to?

this only happen for DOS/WINDOWS ports (could be removed, yes),
autoconf-based ports read "compile-time settings" here.
In case we move it to the options menu we got a case (3).
