i recompiled with  --enable-externs  & in  lynx.cfg  added the line
EXTERNAL:mailto:mutt %s:TRUE
which does get Mutt to start.

3 problems:
(1) there appears to be no way to include the current document
in the file to be mailed:  %s  is the  mailto: URL
and a 2nd  %s  causes problems (see 3);
(2) Mutt (at least) offers as `To:' line `mailto: address@hidden' ;
(3) Lynx 2-8-3dev.14 crashes if the external command is badly defined:
surely in that case, Lynx should provide an error message & continue.
