I run into the following problem.

A fresh FreeBSD 4.9 system installed from CD,
it is accessed via PuTTY terminal emulator.
Lynx 2.8.5rel is compiled with the default library (ncurses).

When running lynx I see the wrong picture:
text and links are shown on a white background (OK),
while the trailing spases on each line are shown in black !!!
It is with the default term=xterm environment.

Switching the environment to term=linux apparently "fix" the problem,
colored output is shown on a white background.

A naive question: what was wrong with the default configuration?
