 For PRESENT-DAY lynx, current locations are not bad (I mean only
$(prefix)/lynx_help, not various mailcap files). But as the name of this
directory states, it's only for help files. IMO, FUTURE versions of lynx will
install not only help files under $(prefix), so anyway we will have to
1) start a new directory $(prefix)/lynx and put everything there
2) don't install any useful files, thus reducing functionality of lynx.
 IMO 1) is more preferable. 
 Since 2.8.2 will be released soon, we can start preparing users for new
directory layout with 2.8.2, not with 2.8.3.
