The file I have just downloaded today has failed a checksum test, the 
actual checksum being as follows:

> md5sum lynx2.8.8.tar.bz2
b231c2aa34dfe7ca25681ef4e55ee7e8  lynx2.8.8.tar.bz2

rather than f467c043fe9a3963fc1c05f54923803f as stated in the BLFS 7.5 book.

Further investigation reveals that the CHANGES file in the source root 
folder states that the current version is now "2014-03-09 (2.8.8rel.2)" 
(currently the version in the Development Book), rather than the 
original release. The download location is still 
http://lynx.isc.org/lynx2.8.8/lynx2.8.8.tar.bz2 (or the same as ftp:)
