You spelled it perfectly ;-)

Well, I tried to link lynx against libbsd but I'm not sure
if I did it correctly.

What I did were as follows:
configure with
    LIBS="-lbsd" \
        ./configure ...
under an environment with libbsd-dev (for non-Debian people,
which means under libbsd environment).

The output from the configure script is something to check - it
should whether lynx will be using the other functions, e.g.,

checking for random-integer functions... arc4random_stir/arc4random
checking for range of random-integers... 0xFFFFFFFFUL
