I am using:
Lynx Version 2.8.3rel.1 (23 Apr 2000)
I assume bsdi kept that version perhaps because newer versions had
troubles with some things.
In the old days, only I did HISTORY. Now that others are doing it,
which is good, we should standardize to prevent CVS from recording
massive changes to HISTORY for different versions of lynx.

I see on postgresql.org:
Lynx Version 2.8.5dev.16 (01 Jun 2003)
I used that to generate HISTORY, and I did a diff against the HISTORY I
generated, and the only difference is that it doesn't have spaces on
blank lines, which is even better output than mine.
In the future, I will use postgresql.org lynx. If you find yours
generates similar output to that, you can keep using your local one.
I have changed the lynx flag back to -stdin, and regenerated HISTORY, so
you can run a comparison with CVS to see if yours is similar.
