Heck, why compile-time?  That means everyone who wants to
modify those has to build their own lynx.

Why not make settable at *runtime*?

A lot more user-friendly that way.

Especially on big systems where people run centrally-available
software.  (Who other than a developer would prefer
having their own sources, have to keep current on when
new versions are available, etc -- a pain, seems to me.)

Ditto for shell-accounts, as I am using right now,
where you have only a limited amount of disk space.
