It seems that Lynx built with GnuTLS always shows this improper
message when connecting any SSL sites.

X509_NAME_oneline doesn't seem to be compatible with GnuTLS and
OpenSSL.  Lynx doesn't work well with GnuTLS's format.

    OpenSSL: /C=JP/ST=Tokyo/(snip)/CN=...
    GnuTLS : C=, ST=Tokyo,(snip), CN=...

I tested OpenSSL/0.9.6l on Windows and gnutls11 (1.0.16-13.2) on
Debian 3.1.

Just to ignore the message, to set "SSL Prompting" as 
"force yes-response" in option menu.
