In that case, can't you either set up VIEWER to run pdftohtml (from and view that with another instance of lynx or else
run pdftotext (from the xpdf package at and pipe that
to less. You won't be able to view images from the files that way,
but you should be able to read the text. You don't need X to compile
pdftohtml or pdftotext.
