One used to be able to do
#define TELNET_PATH "/bin/false"
#define TN3270_PATH "/bin/false"
#define RLOGIN_PATH "/bin/false"
in userdefs.h, but now, with configure intruding into userdefs.h, I
don't know what would be the canonical way (for Unix-like systems)
to achieve the same. (You can always change lynx_cfg.h after configure
has created it, of course.)
A comment in userdefs.h says:
#else /* Unix */
/* Standard locations are defined via the configure script. When
* helper applications are in your home directory or other nonstandard
* locations, you probably will have to preset the path to them with
* environment variables (see INSTALLATION, Section II-1d).
But INSTALLATION, Section II-1d does not say what to do in order to set,
for example, TELNET_PATH. The environment variables mentioned there, CC,
CFLAGS, etc., are about something completely different.
If you want to disable telnet (and similar) at runtime, look into either
-restrictions or RULESFILE/RULE.
