lynx-dev [PATCH 2.8.5-pre4] Binary mode required

When lynx handles a file to an external program (e.g., you click on a
jpeg file), it writes a copy with input file in a text mode.

(HTLoadFile() opens in text mode unless gzip/bzip2; then it gives it
to HTParseFile(), which calls HTFileCopy().)  What follows is a
horrible hack, but I do not understand the details good enough to
deduce enough info to open file in binary mode...
