Exactly.  It would require, as I've stated numerous times, the talents of
a very competent c programmer to ifdef out the various objects.  I'm not
sure we want (much less do we even have the right to ask) Lynx developers
to work on a thankless job.  But if someone wants to ...

        Subject: minimal lynx
        There was discussion a while back about building a minimal lynx,
        mostly with the intent of using it for anonymous accounts on
        limited-resource machines.
        Well, not linking in LYUpload.o, LYLocal.o, LYCgi.o, LYDownload.o,
        LYNews.o, LYMail.o, LYJump.o and LYTraversal.o reduces the lynx
        image about 9% (from 663552 to 606208 compiling on sun4 with gcc).
        The bottom line is, though, that it would hardly be worth it because
        of the difficulty of _selectively_ removing portions of LYDownload.o
        and LYTraversal.o, which are probably the biggest gainers.  These
        two have to be very carefully ifdefed out to prevent introducing bugs.
