someone else may have more technical suggestions,
but there might be a way of escaping the  - :
have a look in Al Gilman's FAQs in the Main Help Page;
or could you perhaps try  -pauth=`lastname-firstname' .

also, to lynx-dev more generally:
shouldn't Lynx look for  <space>-  to start a new switch, a/a just  - ?
