I definately didn't do it to myself, it seems that it was left over from
an older installation. When I --purged lynx and reinstalled, I got the
offer to put in my own or take the default. I took the default. I did not
see this option when I installed before, so I can only conclude that the
conffile was there already so you left it alone (accepted practice) and I
got the older default.
BTW, as I have the mime-support package installed, for mime.types, I had to
--force-overwrite to get lynx to install. Is it about time to remove the
file from lynx and make lynx depend on mime-support?
