Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 This ticket is still valid, except for the --enable-nls part (this became
 a recommended switch). So, the updated description is:


 To enable good locale support in Lynx, please:

  * Pass --enable-locale-charset configure option, needed for a
 configuration step below.
  * Recommend the --enable-nls option, for translated messages
  * Make S-Lang-2.0.6 not an optional, but a "Not Recommended" dependency,
 because Lynx properly uses UTF-8 terminals only when compiled against
 ncursesw.
  * Add a configuration step so that Lynx gets the proper terminal charset
 from locale settings:
 {{{
 sed -i 's/#LOCALE_CHARSET:FALSE/LOCALE_CHARSET:TRUE/' /etc/lynx.cfg
 }}}
