Shouldn't this be the exact intended behaviour? Local certificates are
not installed, and every browser does have a list of certificates. Can
you try to build on Linux? It shouldn't happen there, since Linux
presumably should have a list of certificates that Lynx can use.

(Problems with network connectivity and incompatibility of USB modems
entirely prevent me from using Linux.)

While I don't have much experience, some software is configured to
compile like that - if `configure' doesn't find the dependency it tries
to compile regardless of the option.
