that's not really needed.  I do that in ncurses (actually a hierarchical
trace), and a few other programs, but the traces in lynx are mostly oriented
toward showing interesting bits of information.  While there is a verbose mode
of tracing in lynx (that shows file- and line-numbers), I find it more useful
to leave enough context in the message that it's easy to grep for the
corresponding printf format.
