I'm working on it.  It's going to be included in the binary
distribution archive and in the wrapper-around-the-source archive I'll
put on hobbes when I have time.  A worthwhile question:  I know some
of the people on this list have been working on the documentation.
Would you (documentation volunteers) prefer that I write up a separate
README.OS2 file, or that I write up patches to the standard INSTALL,
etc files?

As for getting autoconf to work, I don't know about from
LEO; get a patched Autoconf for OS/2 from Juan Jose Garcia Ripoll's
web page,  You need all of the gnu shell
utilities, gnu text utilities, a good sh (either pdksh or ash), m4,
sed, and awk.  Follow the instructions in for running configure.

Yes, of course.

Lynx doesn't look in \mptn\etc (though the people who did the 2.7.2
port may have hardcoded that).  I originally didn't make it look in
%ETC% so as not to conflict with Lynx/2.  By now that's not likely to
be a problem, so I'll see about changing that once I get my hardware
problems sorted out.
