While it's buried deep in l i n k s, it's there.  Hit <esc> and go to
"Setup", "Network Options", "HTTP options", "Header options", and fill
in your desired value under the "Fake User-Agent".  Then "OK", "OK",
"OK" to get back to your browsing session.  If you want to make it
persist, then hit <esc> and go back to "Setup", "Save options".  This
will generate a ~.links/links.cfg file which, among other things,
will contain a line like

  fake_useragent "Faked User Agent String Here"

There are a bunch of options buried in those "Setup" options that
allow you to control all manner of settings.
