It may have been, or else lynx may have been statically linked against ncurses.
It's simple enough to check ("ldd lynx" for the former, or "nm lynx" for the

yes - setting $TERMINFO, e.g.,
        setenv TERMINFO /usr/share/lib/terminfo
in your .cshrc file.  That's assuming the problem is as I said.  You can
see this by doing a "strings lynx" (if "ldd lynx" doesn't show that it is
linked against libcurses), and looking for pathnames that contain "terminfo".

However, I'm reasonably sure of this - one of my accounts is on a machine
where someone's installed a lot of stuff from sunfreeware, including lynx,
which is linked against, which in turn assumes the terminfo
data is under /opt/sfw/share/terminfo.
