there was some discussion of this a few months ago:
try searching the Archive at www.flora.org/lynx-dev
or www.crl.com/~subir/lynx/search-archives.html .
you may be able to handle it by downloading the raw file
& then editing & resubmitting it:
details were slightly technical & it's not something i usually want to do.

maybe: Lynx is developed by volunteers: you're welcome to join them ...

simply use numbered links: change lynx.cfg or enter o for options;
or use search / with a suitable string;
or get the development code via lynx.browser.org ,
which has a new command 123g , which does what you want for numbered links.

no doubt noted by the generous people who have created it over time.
