This has been discussed before.  

It seems to me and at least on other lynx-dev reader that it makes sense to
NEVER show link numbers in -dump mode, since they only make sense for 
interactive use.  I'm not sure if this has been fixed, since I admit that I am
not seeing the problem anymore..  That is, my daily emailed imdb (done via
a crontab entry that calls lynx on the page and mails it to me) doesn't have
link numbers anymore, and I _don't_ have a -nonumber_links or whatever it's
called.  I do have a "-crawl" and don't remember why I have that so it's
probably related to this.

Sorry for the rambling, but basically, just another vote for making link
numbers never show up in -dump mode.
