I'll see if I can fix this.

I have never compiled with "IGNORE_CTRL_C". Will this enable an exit
back to lynx from a hung "http request sent, waiting for reply"? I'll
try with that define when I get a chance to compile a new binary, and
see if it functions better under DOS. CTRL-BREAK should still be able
to break out to DOS.
