I don't know that it is possible to port lynx as it stands to a 286 DOS
machine.  Wayne has a program derived from lynx called "bobcat" that
works on 286 processors.  I believe there is a separate mailing list for
it.  Information is on Wayne's web page:

All of the DOS ports of lynx require at least a 386 processor.  If a
preexisting DPMI manageer is not present, CWSDPMI (from the DJGPP
distribution) is recommended. Actually all programs compiled with DJGPP
require at least a 386 processor.
