Edit the "NO_DOT_FILES:FALSE" line into lynx.cfg

Depending on your system, and how thoroughly it's hidden, try:

    strings `whence lynx` | grep -i cfg

    strings `whence lynx` | more

Some shells have no "whence" command.  Csh uses "which" instead of "whence".
"type lynx" may find you the full path with some shells.

    find / -name 'lynx*'

    find / -name '*cfg'

Warning:  "find" commands starting at root are expensive.
