Thanks for this!

Thanks again for testing, but I have a major gcc related change in my 
working copy.

ISC has re-released lynx-2.8.6 at least once. I will re-download this 
file and fix the SHA1 sum.

That's not very good. The intention is to release 6.2-4 and 6.3-pre1 
with identical BLFS contents (so that LFS can be blamed for all 
differences). So it looks like I should update Subversion in the 6.2 
branch, too. Do you have any objections?
