yup: i just went to  & followed their links:
what you get is from the regular Lynx distribution point.
so i would advise going to
& downloading directly from there.
you'll then have to unzip it (above), then compile it:
see the clear & detailed instructions in INSTALLATION.
if you run into problems anywhere along the way, ask again here:
it shouldn't be too difficult if you do carefully what it says.

you can TRY this first, just in case, but i doubt if it'll work.
