SSL Errors in Lynx

I'm refering to lynx (the cat) with this question.

I just updated lynx from 2.85dev2 to 2.85dev9, installed it and now
I'm getting the following error every time I attempt an SSL
SSL error:unable to get local issuer certificate-Continue? (y)
Now I can hit y or the enter key and it goes on through.  Obviously
this is quite annoying as this happens every time an HTTPS transaction
is attempted.  This did not happen at all with my previous version of
lynx.  Yes, I did choose the --with-ssl option during the configure
step; actually, I used the same configure options this time I did for
lynx 2.85dev2 last year or so.

I don't know if the newer lynx requires a latter version of the
openssl libraries or not.  

This is all on a slackware 8.1 system with a 2.4.20 kernel.

Any ideas?
