configure can only find out what your system can do by finding out what
it can't do; errors in config.log are entirely normal and to be expected!

I haven't built Lynx recently, but generally you should run configure
and make as an unprivileged user, then run make install as root.  Depending
on how the Makefile is written, make install may or may not actualy make
the executables.
