It isn't just the startfile. The way lynx is set now, it aborts if all
the initial files aren't present. It aborts on the absence not only of
the startfile, but also lynx.cfg and lynx.lss. I like it this way. It
forces the files to be fixed before proceeding. The only thing that
distubs me about this is that if the helpfiles are gzip'd, it may be
hard to read them when lynx isn't set up correctly.
