This may or may not be relevant.

    # If NO_DOT_FILES is TRUE (normal default via userdefs.h), the user will not
    # be allowed to specify files beginning with a dot in reply to output 
    # prompts, and files beginning with a dot (e.g., 
    # will not be included in the directory browser's listings.  If set FALSE, 
    # can force it to be treated as TRUE via -restrictions=dotfiles.  If set 
    # and not forced TRUE, the user can regulate it via the 'o'ptions menu (and
    # may save the preference in the RC file).

find on most systems and locate on many.   I believe this information is
also contained in the trace output on recent versions and you can always 
try string lynx | grep \\.cfg
