You do have to patch pdcurses for arrow keys to work in the MingW port,
but the patch I referenced was to let lynx compile. There are several
ways that lynx could be compiled under MingW, and I only tested one. 

I compiled under Cygwin, using the "-mno-cygwin" directive, and using
the configure script. This works, but configure gets three defines
wrong for MingW, requiring a manual edit of lynx_cfg.h. Optimally
(perhaps for the 2.8.6 series), I or someone else will patch configure
to fix that.

MingW now has msys, which should allow use of the configure script under
a pure MingW system, rather than using "-mno-cygwin" under a Cygwin bash
shell. The third option would be compiling from a batchfile, such as
makelynx.bat (which is in the distribution). Has anyone used these
latter two methods? Do they work on the current code? Who wrote
makelynx.bat? I had never really noticed that batch file before.
