Ok, 628 lines don't seem to be comments but options, of which 34 are
explicitly set. That still doesn't tell me how to enable lynx to
display the files I would like to read.

The web page looks good --- but it seems to tell me that it isn't
possible to have a setting to reject all cookies in the
~/.lynxrc. Lynx itself won't save that setting, either, and I'm tired
of changing the setting every time myself.

So how do you make lynx display gziped files?
