When Lynx was built, the configure script was not told to use ssl.

        --with-ssl \

The INSTALLATION file says

  --with-ssl[=XXX]                      (define USE_SSL)
        Use this option to configure with the OpenSSL library, or SSLeay.
        See docs/README.ssl for additional information.

        The optional value XXX specifies the directory in which the library
        can be found, and may be either the path of the "lib" directory,
        or one level above.  In either case, the corresponding header files
        are assumed to be in the parallel "include" directory.

(gnutls can also be used, but if you are compiling lynx for your own use,
there is no reason to consider using that package)
