It just happens to use the environment variables used by the generic
locale system. I don't know if that's a good idea.

I personally _could_ live with the situation of using LC_MESSAGES
with setlocale() to determine it *IF AND ONLY IF* --enable-nls is
given at configure time, which I don't do.

But given that lynx doesn't even use LC_CTYPE to determine the
display character set (which, in contrast to LC_MESSAGES, is not
NLS specific and thusly should even be done with --disable-nls),
there's no point of that to go in.

Henry's arguments _additionally_ still apply, of course.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
