Yes.  You can add --enable-cgi-links in the Makefile or set
LYNXCGI_LINKS in the make command line.  (I'm not sure what the
default is).  You can set environmental variables for the cgi
in lynx.cfg where you can also restrict cgi execution to
certain directories (if desired) and set document root for cgi
(if necessary).  See Supported URLs in lynx help for more
information about lynxcgi links.
