I have a strong distaste for solving other peoples' problems, Comrade,
especially when they have a previous record of inventing new ones

However, I did the next best thing:  I posted the compiled version in
bzipped format to the news group alt.binaries.misc.  Anyone involved in
making the most recent Windows 32 source changes might find it interesting
to use the MingW32 gcc version of lynx.exe with their own lynx.cfg file.
