lynx-dev Problem with externals/Lynx 2.8.1pre.8 (04 Oct 1998)

Lynx is really coming along fine... lots of nifty cool features being
added in :)

I seem to be having a problem with externals (in fact I've never gotten
externals to work at all since it was first implemented). When I press the
'.' key, nothing happens.

I ran configure with --enable-externs (nothing seems to be wrong there;
LYExtern.c is compiled during the make process; USE_EXTERNALS is 1 as
well). I didn't touch the key maps (even though I did try mapping other
keys to EXTERN to no avail); LYNXKEYMAP: shows . -> EXTERN fine.

The default defined EXTERNAL is there, along with one to just dump the URL
to a file:

EXTERNAL:wget:wget %s &:TRUE
EXTERNAL:urls:echo %s >> ~/urls.txt:TRUE

What happens when one presses the EXTERN key? I tried deciphering the
source and I could just figure out that it runs LYK_EXTERN, there's a
run_external along the way, and a HTUserAlert somewhere too. What is
_supposed_ to happen? Does the user get a menu a la (d)ownload or (p)rint?

BTW, I'm on Linux 2.0.32.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Here are the compile time options, if it would help:
