Actually, if I remember correctly, to do this you need to create a
shell script which give you the choices, then set this script as the
external command. I haven't done it, but the lines in lynx.cfg should
be something like:

EXTERNAL:http:your_script %s
EXTERNAL:ftp:your_script %s
EXTERNAL:gopher:your_script %s

You would need a separate line for each type of URL for which you want
this to be available.
