  Why do you think that the original version of the patch worked improperly?
  It doesn't apply very cleanly (very small manual intervention of adding
 one line to userdefs.h is required), but seems there won't be any problems
 with it.

  Seems that documentation for this setting in lynx.cfg is even more clear in
this respect (I repost it again):

# This option defines the string that will be used as title of hidden link (
# the link that otherwise won't have any any label associated with it).
# Using the empty string as the value will cause lynx to behave in old way -
# hidden links will be handled according to other settings (mostly the
# parameter of --hiddenlinks commandline switch). If the value is non-empty
# string, hidden link becomes non-hidden so it won't be handled as hidden link
# (e.g. listed among hidden links on 'l'isting page).

 So you can start working right now :)
