It doesn't matter that the syntax looks somewhat like C.

It isn't C.  You'd practically have to compile the gawk interpreter
into lynx to make use of it.  Well, at least a lage part of gawk I
assume.  Starting with a regex library.

Where's the advantage of that kind of 'incorporating'?  Even if it
*were* C - it still operates on completely different data structures
in completely different ways.  There would be very little code reuse.
So why should it be in the same program & address space?
