Set the no_proxy environment variable.

If you are using lynx on a Unix (etc.) system, you can use

    env no_proxy='*' lynx [...]

or just

    no_proxy='*' lynx [...]

to start up.  On the other hand, if normally you don't use a
proxy but sometimes you want to, don't specify http_proxy and so on
in lynx.cfg; when you want the proxy, start lynx like

    env http_proxy=http://my.proxy:pppp/  lynx [...]

The mechanism that already exists is more flexible than a simple
-noproxy would be, since you can put specific hosts or domains in
no_proxy (see lynx.cfg).
