I'm not able to test those packages, but can compile lynx on an account
on Solaris 10 for instance, and can connect to an HTTPS URL.

This message comes from WWW/Library/Implementation/HTTP.c

#ifdef USE_SSL
    if (!strncmp(url, "https", 5))
        status = HTDoConnect(url, "HTTPS", HTTPS_PORT, &s);
        status = HTDoConnect(url, "HTTP", HTTP_PORT, &s);
    if (!strncmp(url, "https", 5)) {
        HTAlert(gettext("This client does not contain support for HTTPS URLs.")>
        status = HT_NOT_LOADED;
        goto done;
    status = HTDoConnect(arg, "HTTP", HTTP_PORT, &s);
#endif /* USE_SSL */

(I'm pretty sure that even though it's linked with the library, it's
not configured to use it).

It appears to be linked with the right libraries - but having dealt
with BSD packagers who don't use the configure script, the first thing
to check is whether the compile-time #define's look sane.

At the bottom of the options menu, there's a link to

  View the file lynx.cfg.

In that page, there's a link to

     * compile time options

The content of _that_ page is most of the data that the configure script
gathers, in more readable form.  It would help to see that (though I
suspect that the configure script wasn't used, and that the page is
missing ;-).

Very likely, the bug report should go to sunfreeware.
