I'm not sure what that is supposed to tell me...  Does it mean you
do not consider "--enable-debug has no effect" a bug?

About the configure script I just want to know how to use the dang
thing, not how it works internally.  (Well at least not now.)

So what, exactly, is the "standard" way to compile lynx with debugging?

(I leave the question "when do I use CFLAGS, when do I use CPPFLAGS"
for another day.)
