I have tried to compile lynx with djgpp.  This fails because the macro
USE_PERSISTENT_COOKIES is undefined.  The compilation of LYMain.c fails
at line 2364 because LYCookieFile and LYCookieSaveFile are used in the
if-clause when they are not defined at all in the case that
USE_PERSISTENT_COOKIES is undefined.  The if block starts at 2364 and
ends at 2439.  Now the question arises if this if block is needed at
all in case that USE_PERSISTENT_COOKIES is undefined.  Neitherless I
have solved the problem for me with the patch below.  It is clear that
this issue will impact on all systems where USE_PERSISTENT_COOKIES is
