You seem to be confusing me with the OP. My point was in specific
reference to the OP's observation that using the latest version of
OpenSSL from the recommended download page did not seem to be providing
the expected DLLs. I will leave others to answer the broader question on

Downloading the latest (1.1.0) release of OpenSSL will not work with
lynx (perhaps the lynx website should be updated with some guidance on
this). The are many changes between OpenSSL 1.1.0 and the previous
release 1.0.2, and they are not fully source compatible. One change is
that the DLL names are different, so any application built against
OpenSSL 1.0.2 will be unable to find the right DLLs in an OpenSSL 1.1.0

At the moment lynx 2.8.8 fails to compile against the OpenSSL 1.1.0
headers (I just tried it). The required changes are, usually, relatively
easy to implement.
