it's that guy in the bleachers again (smile):
how do you tell Lynx where to find  lynx.cfg  with a configure --switch ?
how do you tell Lynx to number form fields with a configure --switch ?
NO, i don't want to have to remember to use run-time flags
or change options whenever i re-start Lynx (for numbered fields);
YES, numbering fields should have been added to  lynx.cfg  long ago.

anyway, if we adopt what you say as policy,
we should say so in BIG LETTERS at the top of  userdefs.h ,
not to mention some appropriate place in INSTALLATION.

of course by all means, let's clean up
the whole configure/userdefs/cfg/flags/options/keys mess ...
