yes.  I'm attempting to leave the original build mechanism intact until
the replacement is complete.  (I may accidentally break something by moving
ifdef's around, as in tcp.h, but that's not intentional).

right.  There shouldn't be any impact.

right.  I fixed some of the places where _not_ defining EXP_CHARTRANS
causes problems (but not all -- my main goal was to integrate my changes).
I did the ARGS & PARAMS stuff, to make it compile on SunOS 4.x with K&R C,
since I do test-builds where possible with the vendor's compiler.

It's my logic in lynx_chg_color().  The immediate cause of the message is
restricting bg to less than 8.  SVr4 curses defines 8 colors, as does the
terminal spec ISO 6429 - slang takes liberties with that which I attempt to
model, but I didn't test a "white" background (bright backgrounds are a special
case which apparently translate only in conjunction with other attributes).
