Yes, documented as LINE_MAX in recent man pages.  I've never tried
compiling Lynx with an expanded LINE_MAX: does it work or does it run
into countervailing assumptions elsewhere in the code?  I imagine that
setting it to a large value like 1M would bloat the Lynx process (but
nothing like a GUI browser...) and probably slow it down as well...
