I've been compiling lynx with SSL since Lynx 2.8.1rel.2 and SSLeay 0.90
without any problems. Now I'm using Lynx 2.8.3dev.18 with OpenSSL 0.9.4. Of
course I had to adapt the patches to the changes in newer versions of Lynx
but that has never been a problem.

Mostly yes but since OpenSSL 0.9.2 or 0.9.3 the include files are on the
include/openssl directory instead of the include directory. Mark Mentovai's
patch ( for lynx2.8.3dev.17 already takes that
in consideration. The patch for lynx2.8.2 has to be modified. Change in the
patch for the line



+SSL_DEFINES= -DUSE_SSL -I$(SSL_DIR)/include/openssl -I$(SSL_DIR)/include
