No, it's not there (Note that cygintl-1.dll is not the same as
cygintl.dll). To find which package you're missing follow the
instructions outlined in this mail:
Reinstalling should be enough, setup.exe should know which packages lynx
depends on and also install them. Ahhh lynx is missing a setup.hint 8-(
And setup.ini includes only:
sdesc: "Text-mode WWW Browser"
requires: cygwin zlib
install: contrib/lynx/lynx-2.8.4-1.tar.bz2 1262804
source: contrib/lynx/lynx-2.8.4-1-src.tar.bz2 1941539
$ cygcheck lynx
Use -h to see help about each section
So it's missing a "requires" for both cygintl.dll and cygncurses5.dll.
You should find out who is mantaining lynx and ask her to upload an
up-to-date setup.hint" file for lynx. Or even better write one yourself
and offer to mantain lynx 8-)
