I used the libintl.a from the DOS port of gettext in the DJGPP
archives. If I recall correctly, I recompiled this from source to
match the current DJGPP 2.03 headers and GCC 2.95.2. I haven't tried
to use the libintl code in the lynx package, so I don't know how well
it would work under DOS. Have any of the other DOS users on lynx-dev
tried the included libintl code under DOS?
