LYNX-DEV Problem Downloading .tgz Files

Whenever I try to get any .tgz file through Lynx, it sees the file as a text 
and tries to bring it down and display it, rather than download
it as a binary file. I have no difficulty with Lynx recognizing a .tar.gz
file as binary and asking if I want to download, nor with any other .gz or
.zip files. I've seen this effect with both Lynx-2.6 and Lynx-2.7, running
on both my ISP's Sparcs under SunOS 4.1.4 and my own Linux 2.0.29 PC. I've 
added .tgz to the list of SUFFIXES in lynx.cfg as an octet-stream, but this
hasn't made any difference. Can you tell me how to get Lynx to correctly 
see these files as binary and download them correctly? Thanks.
