.lynxrc also defines this so it will take precedence. Set it there and
it will work.

There is an order, lynx.cfg, overridden by .lynxrc, overridden by
command line options, for how these configs are handled.

Edit userdefs.h and recompile, look for

#define FNAME_LYNXRC ".lynxrc"

Now that I think about it, that might not be what you want. You can
specify -cfg "filename" on the command line to inject certain
alternative configurations into the behaviour. If you alias lynx to

lynx='lynx -cfg=file '

it might make things work for you.
