You didn't give us much information to work on. I doubt that "permission
denied" is the first thing that is output by configure. Did you use the
"--prefix" option for configure? If you want to install in your HOME
directory, be sure to use --prefix="$HOME" on the configuration command
line. For help on the configuration options, try "./configure --help".
Most of the time, you don't want to use a plain "./configure".

You may want to run configure with output piped to a log file (in
addition to the config.log file which is automatically generated). Try
running as 
./configure --prefix="$HOME" --(other options here) >my_lynx.log 2>&1

Inspection of your log files will usually answer the question of what
went wrong.
