LYNX_CFG_FILE is one that defined by autoconf or userdefs.h (if you do not
use autocunf). The code Doug was objecting at work as following:
if you was compiled with autoconf it use symbol LYNX_CFG_FILE
as a path for "complete" lynx.cfg file for info page...
"Complete" means the comments does not removed.
You do _not_ need any lynx.cfg in lynx_help/ is you compile with autoconf.

And lynx_cfg_file - one that defined on statup via environment or -cfg= switch.
This file usually in home dir and its contents may vary dramatically
in general case.

DOS/WINDOWS do not supposed to have a fixed directory structure
so they do not have default path in LYNX_CFG_FILE.
It was proposed by me **for those platforms only** to suggest
putting a copy of lynx.cfg in lynx_help/ dir, as was clearly
described in CHANGES.  Other suggestions always welcome,
but please read docs first.

see above.

Tom, please add this patch for those on UNIX
who builds without autoconf if any.
