I don't like this idea. The last time I did not mention anything about
this kind of change /usr/local/lib got changed to /usr/local/etc for
lynx.cfg, so I would rather not see anything different. To me, this
would create all kinds of directories I don't want. All of the old
versions are available if they are needed. Changing this alters one of
the earliest steps in an upgrade. Since the development version is
inevitably the best version available, always recommended for any fix,
and is always rock solid, keeping the directory named for the major
version number makes sense.
