[Lynx-dev] non-html start URL

Lynx experts,

I'm using lynx as URL viewer in the alpine mailer on debian linux
in a simple text console:
url-viewers="/usr/bin/lynx _URL_"

This works fine with html URLs in the mail.
But, as soon as the link in the mail points to a pdf file,
lynx tries to start /usr/bin/xpdf, which, of course, does not work on
a text console. I have not figured out yet, why lynx tries to start
xpdf and how to come over it. I'd prefer that lynx simply comes up with
the download menu for the pdf file.
This effect is not specific to a certain lynx version.

Ideas are very welcome
