Don't know, but you could try experimenting with setting COLORTERM and
COLORFGBG in your environment for libslang, as described in

Also if you set LYNX_SCREEN_LIB=ncurses in your environment when you
build the package (either lynx or lynx-current), it'll not only use
ncurses instead of slang, but it'll enable "color styles", which lets
you set the attributes to colors mappings in a file.
