If you are not compiling, you might want to experiment with environment
variables, e.g., for the csh shell:
        setenv LYNX_TEMP_SPACE $HOME
In lynx.cfg, you can set some directories, e.g., SAVE_SPACE:~/foo/.


PS I still question whether advising changes to userdefs.h over other
   configuration methods available is the best approach.  (From my point
   of view, since all this "flexible, fine-tuning" configuration has been
   rammed down my throat (bloated lynx.cfg of 100KB+), I'd at least like
   people to make use of it.)
