I built lynx (after setting up Ubuntu 16.04 for development), and don't
see any problems with ssl.

If you had the "libssl-dev" package installed, it would find the pkg-config.

Normally I run configure using the "--verbose" option, which gives a
few more lines (indented), e.g.,

checking if you want ssl library... yes
checking if you want gnutls support... no
checking if you want gnutls-openssl compat... no

checking pkg-config for openssl... yes
        adding -lssl -lcrypto to LIBS
        checking ssl header-path /usr/include/openssl


checking for ldd... ldd
        ...checking EXTRA_LDFLAGS 
        ...checking LDFLAGS 
        ...checked LDFLAGS 
        ...checking LIBS -lz -lbz2 -lidn -lncurses -ltinfo -lssl -lcrypto
        ...checked LIBS  -lz -lbz2 -lidn -lncurses -ltinfo -lssl -lcrypto
        ...checked EXTRA_LDFLAGS 
For bug reports, it helps to have these files:

(and the log from compiling, of course).
