I have gentoo.  I started with the 2004.0 version and have done
emerge world several times since.  Sometime in the past year or two,
lynx started inverting my xterm foreground/background, or at least

Perhaps you're talking about the original, and "color-style" schemes.

Generally in the former, lynx draws "white" (normally some gray shade)
for the background.  In the latter, lynx generally uses the scheme
with a black background.  Each has some runtime configurability; however
most people don't change it.

Until lynx 2.8.6, the two flavors didn't mix (since the original scheme
cannot be made to do color-style, and since color-style was not easily
configured to simulate the original scheme).   But I changed the default
configuration of color-style to allow this.  There's a sample script in
the lynx sources (oldlynx) which does a reasonable job of simulating the
original scheme.

Here's a copy of that, for instance:

# invoke lynx built with color-style, overriding the color options to use the
# non-color-style scheme -TD

trap "rm -f $my_cfg" 0 1 2 5 15

rm -f "$my_cfg"
echo "DEFAULT_COLORS:off" >>$my_cfg
if test -n "$LYNX_CFG" ; then
        echo "include:$LYNX_CFG" >>$my_cfg
echo "COLOR_STYLE:" >>$my_cfg
echo "NESTED_TABLES:off" >>$my_cfg

export LYNX_CFG
unset LYNX_LSS

${LYNX_PROG-lynx} "$@"
