ugh (lots of change, I agree).  I can make some intermediate versions
available, so we can do a binary-search - that's time-consuming unless
I know what we're looking for.  (I can test Solaris directly, and it
does save .lynxrc)

Since patch-o-matic is not working, each time I do a checkin, I also make
a patch - they're in the current webpage.  I check them by applying the
patch to my working copy at home; much simpler than downloading 1.5M each
time.  When I do a test-build other places I test from the tar ball.
