I tried this on the latest autconfig+bugfixes version:
lynx "http://host/~user/page.html#The End"

Lynx goes to the invalid url fragment anyway!  Per the CHANGES file:
* Mods of HREF resolving to be more consistent with the latest IETF draft
  Most importantly, lone fragments (HREF="#fragment") are resolved versus
  the current document's URL, and no longer versus the BASE, if present.
  There are a few things in the draft which are at odds with what virtually
  all currently deployed browsers do, and so I stuck with the "deployed"
  behavior.  Try the tests in  to
  see where Lynx still differs from the draft. - FM
