well, it's something to test (and possibly fix).  Just to review - it's
been a while since I was in that area - one of the things I did for this
was to generate the on/off text so I can see what's compiled-in, or has
been set so far via the options.  Here's "lynx -anonymous -restrictions":

USAGE: lynx -restrictions=[option][,option][,option]
List of Options:
  ?                 when used alone, list restrictions in effect.
  all               restricts all options.
  bookmark          disallow changing the location of the bookmark file (off)
  bookmark_exec     disallow execution links via the bookmark file (off)
  change_exec_perms disallow changing the eXecute permission on files
                    (but still allow it for directories) when local file
                    management is enabled. (off)
  compileopts_info  disable info on options used to compile the binary (on)
  default           same as commandline option -anonymous.  Sets the
