| Hello.
| In past, years ago, I was able to use lynx to view the items in a directory.
| This included, as I recall, only the name of a file/directory on each line 
| perhaps its size if a nondirectory entry.
| Now this is a typical line:
| -rwxr-xr-x    1 dandunfe staff      74362 Mar  7 15:54 ack
| The "ack" at the end is an application in the directory, the rest is info 
| that file.
| Is there some config, or possible new one, item to provide just the
| file/directory name and size?

no - it doesn't have that.  The relevant settings in the options menu

are these items:

  Listing and Accessing Files
  Use Passive FTP (!)              : [ON_]
  FTP sort criteria                : [By Date]
  Local directory sort criteria    : [Directories first]
  Local directory sort order       : [By Date_]
  Show dot files                   : [OFF]
