Though this may change in the future, in currently released builds of
Mac OS X, curses (not ncurses, if I remember correctly -- I admittedly don't
know tons about either) is built directly into the system.

The one trick is that it is in the System.framework, which is
implicitly linked into projects..

Basically, I got it to compile a long time ago..  I don't remember what
troubles there were, admittedly..  It was by far one of the easier things
to port.

But again, I am JUST talking about lynx from the command line, not
any kind of "run in a separate window" app.

AAAAH -- even easier.

go to, and you can find out about a more automated
way of getting packages.

Found 4 packages that match "lynx":

 links - Lynx-like text WWW browser with tables
 links-ssl - Lynx-like text WWW browser with tables
 lynx - Console based web browser
 lynx-ssl - Console based web browser (SSL-enabled)

So you can get all of these, precompiled..  And the fink package manager
thing handles all dependent libraries (e.g. it will get ncurses, which
these compilations use).
