That sounds right.

config'ing lynx2.8.6dev.11 w/ BOTH ip6 & widec options as:

  ./configure \
  --prefix=/usr/local \
  --with-ssl=/usr/local/ssl \
  --with-zlib \
  --with-screen=ncurses \
  --enable-color-style \
  --enable-default-colors \
  --enable-change-exec \
  --enable-cgi-links \
  --enable-exec-links \
  --enable-exec-scripts \
  --disable-nls \

It seems that someone's packaged ncursesw as libncurses (which works,
but means that you can't have both libraries).  Since ncursesw stores
more data per cell, it will be slower (I prefer being able to make the

seem to indicate that widec support is ON.

as for IP6 support, yes it compiles, but not sure how to test ...

There are some sites that you can connect to test (I recall finding that
when I was testing a while back).  The ones I bookmarked don't seem to
