Yes, it does. Setting -cfg=* also seems to be a Debian thing;
AFAICS Tom told them already in 1999 that setting it to .lynxrc
is a bad thing (on some mailing lists).

Disagreed. I say, do both of the above, PLUS switch the
|BOOLEAN syslog_requested_urls = TRUE;
from src/LYMain.c to FALSE – this is only used if the
lynx.cfg file doesn’t set it, which is the original
person’s problem, so it is a safe default in all cases.

In addition to that I also propose erroring out fatally
if -cfg=«foo» is given and «foo» matches FNAME_LYNXRC
(or rather, the full path FNAME_LYNXRC is expanded to
matches «foo»’s full path). A bit radical, but safer
in the long term.
