I have gotten a little further, using your  I am running
Cygwin, latest version (1.18).  McAfee 4.03 with very recent data
files does not complain about downloading it.

The linking process halted when it encountered the expression
"string_short" in lymainloop.c.  I examined that area of the code,
decided it had something to do with Japanese character processing
which I wasn't going to be using, and I commented out that line with
/* ... */.

A copy of Lynx is built, but there are several things wrong with it. 
It seems to require the cygwin1.dll file in order to run.  The home
and end keys don't do anything; cursor keys, Pgup, Pgdn, space, b,
etc. do work.  Shift-Tab acts the same as Tab, moving to the next
link.  I think this configuration doesn't know it's supposed to be
compiled for Windows 9X/2000/NT.

I am a rank amateur when it comes to putting all this together, but
it looks like, with enough time and patience, Ican get Lynx to
compile properly.

The which Iused looks like:

# LIBS="-lrand48" \
./configure \
--disable-dired-override \
--enable-addrlist-page \
--enable-change-exec \
--enable-exec-links \
--enable-externs \
--disable-gzip-help \
--enable-prettysrc \
--disable-read-eta \
--enable-source-cache \
--libdir=/etc \
--with-screen=ncurses \
--with-ssl \
