Well, then a better solution would be to not use colors that don't have
good contrast on either a black background or a white background.
Changing the default to black does not seem such a good idea just for
that reason.  AFAIK all major X terminal emulators default to have white
background, and no other terminal application defaults to have a dark
background, so lynx changing the default to have a black background
is very strange.

Debian defaults to white-on-black. Also, of course, most console emulators use white-on-black.
