That should be -lssl -lcrypto.

Since you appearr to be in the US, you can't use the RSA code in
openssl. I presume Sun has licensed code from RSA that you can use.
You probably need something like "-lssl -lcrypto -lRSAglue -lrsa",
with the last referring to your licensed RSA library.

You have to get a working SSL before you attempt the lynx compilation.

NOPROTO is for lynx. I don't think it means anything for openssl.

Why are you using an old version of openssl? Current version is  0.9.4.
I recall a problem in this section of the code that was subsequently

There have been lots of fixes since 0.9.1c. Start with the latest
release of openssl. For help compiling openssl, see their mailing
list. We can probably only help with the lynx part here, after you
have openssl compiled.
