100 <para><parameter>--libdir=/etc</parameter>: For some reason, the

102 <application>Lynx</application> uses <option>libdir</option> as the prefix
103 for the configuration file. This is set to
104 <filename class="directory">/etc</filename> so that the system wide
105 configuration file is <filename>/etc/lynx.cfg</filename>.</para>
