I didn't see any one else answer this, but I've gotten
behind on my list reading....

I believe the problem is in your lynx.cfg EXTERNAL
definitions.  If they actually are as given above, try
changing the second field to the actual protocol(?)
identifier that begins the URLs you want to use the external
program on, thus:

EXTERNAL:ftp:wget %s &:TRUE

EXTERNAL:http:echo %s >> ~/urls.txt:TRUE
I think that will probably do the trick.
