You don't need anything "from the Lynx source" to change that program
so that it uses a proxy.  And it doesn't have anything to do with
"Firewall Lynx Source Code", really...

Say "proxy" if you mean an HTTP proxy.  Whatever else that "Firewall"
is or does (basically a marketing term), it's irrelevant.  (Unless
it isn't - in which case you have to talk to whoever runs it anyway.)

  #define ENGINE_HOST  ""
  #define ENGINE_PORT  80
  #define PROXY_HOST  ""
  #define PROXY_PORT  8080

and then replace the ENGINE_* symbols with PROXY_* throughout.

   "POST /cgi-bin/BLAST/%s HTTP/1.0\n"
   "POST HTTP/1.0\n"

That should be all.  Or not - I may have overlooked something.
Or that proxy rejects your request for some silly reason.
