If you want lynx to present a particular certificate that is required by a
server for access this is not possible at the moment.

If you want lynx to accept a known good certificate presented by a server to
establish ssl, hash it in your cert dir using c_rehash - (see README.sslcerts
in docs for the step by step). Note the section on environment variables, which
are the usual showstopper in whatever shell it is that you inhabit.

Your cacert.crt file is some certificate bundle which you will implicitly trust
if you run this certtool utility successfully on it. Most of these utilities
are frontends for openssl utilities - c_rehash is a perl script. They all
create symlinks named after a hash value to the actual cert file indicating
your system's acceptance of the certificate as correct.
