I agree it's not a logical place.  I also don't know a better one.

I find your three points convincing (until someone comes up with a
better idea).  But maybe there should be a link to it on the 'O'ptions
menu, too.

No, not just for DOS/WINDOWS ports.  It depends on configuration (compile
time and runtime).

For example try
   -restrictions=compileopts_info  ->  "your lynx.cfg" link on 'I'nfo page
   -restrictions=compileopts_info,lynxcfg_info ->   no extra link at all
   (or just -anonymous)

(assuming ./configure without --disable-config-info)
