[arch-general] Lynx package lacks documentation

Is it intentional the decision to not include in lynx package the
program documentation, despite it being available from upstream sources?
Upstream seems to prefer if users set HELPFILE in lynx.cfg to a local
path, as can be seen from this quote (lynx.cfg):
"The default HELPFILE is:
This should be changed to the localpath."
However this isn't currently possible without further action from the
user after installing the package. Also of note the fact that an
upstream update will render the default URI in HELPFILE invalid and turn
lynx help inoperative, until a package with the new version is made
available or the user takes corrective measures (they either build from
source themselves or download the old version help files to their system).
