No.  It's the general configuration file.  It doesn't actually have to
be called lynx.cfg, if you prefer something else, but you have to tell
lynx which file to use (if you want lynx to use something else than
the default).

But did you tell lynx to use it?  With -cfg=..., or by another methods...

The "old-style" options menu is 'better' in this respect, it disables
just one of the choices.  You can still select 'Always' and save that
for future sessions, even if the current session is in a no-color-possible
mode.  Maybe that's not too useful, and the price for it is specialized
code that's hard to understand...  The generic FORM code can only disable
a SELECT list as a whole.
