1. Did you recompile Lynx? 
(I don't know whether this question even makes sense, i.e. how binary
compatible those OS versions are.  But if you are trying to run the
same binary, try to recompile.)

2. You maight want to try compiling with the slang library if you are
using curses, or vice versa.

3. I would dump all environment variables
  (a) as seen by a an 'env' called with "system" exactly as you call lynx,
  (b) as seen in an interactive shell,
  sort and compare.
  (Maybe similar with stty -a.)
