It works for me in DJGPP and Cygwin ports of lynx. I haven't tested
this on other platforms.

Are you saying that your standard ca-bundle isn't found either? If
so, this suggests that you either have it at a location where lynx
doesn't look or you don't have it in pem format. If you want to try a
different ca-bundle, you can try the one in the curl package from my
website. Get ""; and
extract the file called "cert.pem". Put it in the default location
for your OpenSSL distribution (probably /usr/local/ssl). The file
is derived from the ca-certs distributed by Microsoft with Internet
Explorer. For proper security, you should use only certs that you
obtain from a trusted source, but you should be able to use my file
for testing purposes.
