I think it might be safer to think in terms of particularly dangerous
port numbers, and make the list of ports Lynx refuses to talk to a
run-time configurable option ?

It's certainly not as simple as you suggest - e.g. the Lynx code
itself doesn't talk to nameservers, the Unix resolver library does,
and not all WWW servers run on port 80 ?
