s always, I need someone's help posting a bug report on this as
Bugzilla has not yet been made eyes-free accessible ...
The default /etc/lynx.cfg contains the following caution:
# Please don't edit this file directly (it is updated with every Red Hat
# Linux update, overwriting your changes). Instead, edit
# /etc/lynx-site.cfg.
Unfortunately, editing /etc/lynx-site.cfg does no good, as directives
placed there are disallowed, by default, in /etc/lynx.cfg. If one tries,
lynx will not run at all.
