| Hi,
| 
| as the stable/unstable versions of lynx-cur in the debian repos are
| buggy (unable to make secure connections) I did build lynx myself:
| 
| Lynx Version 2.8.9dev.6 (06 May 2015)
| libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 1.0.2a, ncurses 5.9.20140913
| Built on linux-gnu May 17 2015 06:18:53
| 
| Making secure connections is possible (again) now but lynx lacks
| utf-8
| support now. For example german umlauts are displayed like this
| 
| Foren├╝bersicht is replaced by Foren-M-C~\bersicht
| 
| As far as I can see utf8 is the default option for `configure'.

There was some discussion of this in Debian #785383.

The short answer is that Debian made a recent change to their servers,
which is addressed in an update to the lynx package (to use a feature
of gnutls which was not previously needed).
