You have something bizarrely wrong on your machine. Lynx works
perfectly in an xterm without any keymapping, it's a curses application so
it should do and it does. I suspect you have something forcing TERM=CONS25
into the environment - you'd be well served by finding and removing it.
Nothing apart from the curses library should ever need to care what the
terminal type is provided TERM matches reality.
