you can do something like that in  userdefs.h :
eg i have  #define TEMP_SPACE "~/tmp/" ;
sorry, i haven't checked if the others can all be placed there,
but i seem to remember  .lynxcookies  can be put wherever you want.

i don't believe you can set  TEMP_SPACE  in  .lynxrc :
wouldn't that present security dangers on some systems?
