Bug in lynx setup.hint? (was: Re: cygcrypto-0.9.7.dll)

Hallo Arno,

cygcrypto probably needs other files as well.  As far as I know, it
should be selected automatically by setup.exe in the moment you choose

The package you're missing is openssl.
However, I think you have triggered a bug, here the setup.hint from
lynx, there are obviously the correct dependencies, but AFAICT some
colons are missing:

category Web
requires cygwin terminfo libintl2 libiconv2 libncurses7 openssl
sdesc "Text-mode WWW Browser"
ldesc "Lynx is a terminal based WWW browser. While it does not make any attempt
at displaying graphics, it has good support for HTML text formatting,
forms, and tables.  This version includes support for SSL encryption."
curr: 2.8.4-5
test: 2.8.4-6
