[Lynx-dev] lynx 2.8.9dev3 does not check certificate expiration

lynx 2.8.9dev3 (GnuTLS) invokes gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2() but
does not use/check all error flags. e.g. certificate expiration is not
checked. <>. Find attached a patch
against 2.8.9dev3 to change the respective code to simply check for
/any/ error and use gnutls_certificate_verification_status_print() to
print what exactly failed. This follows the example in upstream's

The respective function was added in GnuTLS 3.1.4 (released in
November 2012).

Please doublecheck, I am not a programmer by profession.

thanks, cu Andreas
