I would like to ask consideration be given to making the file download

One could use for exampl curl or wget with their particular options,
or in my intrest an agent which speeds download time by spliting the
file at its origin by multiple parallel requests and then reassembling
it locally.

I use a mac and examples of the latter are axel or aria2 which have
many options as well as to how the download is done.

Have you looked at the DOWNLOADER option in lynx.cfg? Something
like the following might work for you:

        DOWNLOADER:curl:curl -O -L -f -s %s %s &:TRUE

You can also explore something like:

        EXTERNAL_MENU:http:curl download:curl -O -L -s -f %s &:TRUE

You can specify aria2c as well, or in addition to, if you please.
