Some people would modify the file under /etc - but that's not necessary.
I set $LYNX_CFG to point to my own file, and put at the top


and then in that file, modify the color settings. For example:


The advantage to doing it that way, is less tinkering with installed files.
To see what lynx.cfg file is installed, I'd look at dpkg output (-l to
find the package name, -L to look at the list of files).  As someone
notes, lynx-cur installs /etc/lynx-cur/lynx.cfg
