You can always type "lynx -version" with the existing version you have.
If it has SSL support, it will state this quite plainly.  For example,
here is what I get with the stock lynx in Slackware 8.1 where they finally
put SSL in by default.

Lynx Version 2.8.4rel.1 (17 Jul 2001)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4.1, OpenSSL 0.9.6c
Built on linux-gnu Apr 15 2002 17:51:47

See for information about SSL for Lynx.
See for information about OpenSSL.

The second line gives the version of Openssl that it was built with, and
I'm pretty sure the lines about SSL and their web addresses aren't shown
in a non-SSL version.
