+  --enable-internal-links      (prevent defining DONT_TRACK_INTERNAL_LINKS)
+       With this option, `internal links' (links within a document to a
+       location within the same document) get treated differently.  Lynx
+       can distinguish between `<A HREF="foo#frag">' and `<A HREF="#frag">',
+       for example, within a document whose URL is `foo', and may handle
+       them differently.  Practical differences appear only when the
+       containing document is the result of a POST request or has a no-cache
+       flag set.  According to the author of this feature, it does The Right
+       Thing, interprets URL-references as required by RFC 2396, and prevents
+       inappropriate resubmissions of form content with the POST method.
+       According to a previous lynx maintainer, it does the wrong thing,
+       is unnecessary, and can cause inappropriate resubmission of form
+       content.
