I just updated lynx to version 2.8.7-1.

This is the latest upstream version with all relevant patches as in
Fedora 16.  The Cygwin package required a couple of additional patches,
especially to remove all Windows-isms which were wrongly used for
Cygwin as well.  This Lynx version for Cygwin is now free of all direct
Windows calls or potential calls of CMD as subshell.

This package now uses the cygport packaging method.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
