It is not hard.  I do this in most cases.  For Debian/Ubuntu, I first install
"apt" (rather than use the desktop program...).

Then I install the development packages that are used in lynx.
For example

        sudo apt-get install libncursesw5-dev openssl libbz2-dev zlib1g-dev 

After that, it is "only" configure (with suitable options), make and install.
For the configure options, I recommend at least these (which should work
given the apt-get command above):


If there are problems doing that, I can advise you...
