Would not SSL_CERT_DIR work for non-root certificates too?

Well, if it is so, this should be classified as a bug in lynx.  Can
you provide necessary files so that this becomes reproducible?

Lynx is not a web browser.  E.g., it understands file: links too.  ;-)
I would classify it as a "URI space" browser.  And if there is an URL
