not having been down that way, I spent a few minutes and grep'd through
the source - from src/HTInit.c where most of the MIME stuff is mapped,
I see a pointer to something called "personal_extension_map", which
is read from lynx.cfg:

# The global and personal EXTENSION_MAP files allow you to assign extensions
# to MIME types which will override any of the suffix maps in this (lynx.cfg)
# configuration file, or in src/HTInit.c.  See the example mime.types file
# in the samples subdirectory.
