DK has already told you how to get a pre-compiled version,
but your references to `the read-me' are not correct,
if you obtained the latest release package for 2-8-2.
the file README there says quite clearly right at the top:


To use this package, you need a compiler & a bit of experience
at very simple programming.  If you just want something which will work
`out-of-the-box', you can get pre-compiled versions of Lynx
by following the links from  <URL:> ;
for DOS or Windows, goto <URL:>."

if you are getting new software,
you should always ensure you are getting an upto-date release;
the Lynx volunteer team doesn't have time to support older versions.

anyway, the short answer is to start at  as above.
