lynx.cfg is "really" just one large file, which can be split-up with include
statements.  There's only one top-level file which can include others.
That lets a sysadmin for instance add a
        include:~/.lynx.cfg for colors startfile
line last.  If the file doesn't exist, lynx ignores it.

I'm using it in the opposite direction: my home account has a configuration
file which includes lynx.cfg, making it unnecessary to edit lynx.cfg after
installing it.
