 This issue was brought to my attention by "alyx" on IRC...Lynx regularly
 does minor version releases with small changes while keeping the same name
 on the tarball. My copy of lynx 2.8.6 downloaded some time ago says it's
 version "2.8.6rel1.1" but the current one is "2.8.6rel1.5". There aren't
 huge differences, but it does at least affect the md5sum. It may be good
 idea to add a note to the book about this, and mention that the md5sum
 might not always be accurate due to this...
