I'd like to build and install Lynx on Mac OS X. I've found out that building is as simple as running ./configure, but I'm having trouble building with SSL support. I've downloaded openSSL. How do I include it in my build?

It should be as simple as:

./configure --with-ssl


./configure --help

to get all configuration options. Of course, this requires OpenSSL to be built and installed. If you installed it in a non-standard directory, you might need to specify the path with --with-ssl=path, and/or add an include directory.

CFLAGS=-I/path/to/openssl/headers ./configure --with-ssl
