Well, failure when -dump combined with dumb/no TERM is new in 2.8.3
(2.8.2rel.1 seems to work as expected).

Anyway, the simplest workaround is to disable the code for
dump_output_immediately, but that doesn't solve everything -
If lynx is used interactively with -term=someterm, that isn't
in effect at that point in LYMain.c.  So lynx can fail or use
the wrong $TERM.
