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 gettext

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...

All right - for starters, I configured lynx to compile --with-ssl --with-screen=ncursesw.

/usr/local/bin/lynx says:
"Alert: This client does not contain support for HTTPS URLs."


Thank you all!


apt-get install libssl-dev was the solution.

Now, my lynx works as desired!

Thank you all for your patience!
