I suspect this has to do with what Bob said in a recent mail, "set it to
allow the poster's address to show up instead of the list's".  While it's
really the way a list should be set up, regular users of lynx-dev need to
be informed what is happening and the implications it will have.  It's
different from the way things have always been on address@hidden

To give mutt as an example, most lynx-dev users will want to hit 'L' rather
than 'r', as they may have in the past.

Were you meaning "libintl.h"?  On my system "libintl.h" is the only header
file under either /usr/include or /usr/local/include that has that define:
        % cat libintl.h | grep libintl_printf
        #define printf libintl_printf

This is getting a bit off topic (but what the heck we may as well exercise
this list to help iron out the wrinkles), but how would I go about looking
for "a stray #define"?  IIRC, all of the header files calling other header
files up to "slang.h" were Lynx header files.  If I find a "stray" (not sure
what that means) define, what do I do; just delete it (from which file)?

Agree 100%.  Let's just try to hang low for a while and be patient.  Seems
Bob is doing his best.

One thing I didn't understand is, are "nongnu" and "Savannah" different
entities?  I thought before I got bumped off that we were going to
"Savannah", but all I've seen since the end of February was "(non)".
