Actually, OpenSSL needs SSL_CERT_DIR and the hashed files from the .shar
file, while GnuTLS needs SSL_CERT_FILE and them concatenated all into one

I suggest the following:

$ wget
$ sudo dpkg -i ca-bundle_20090709_all.deb

Then set it to /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt instead. Lynx is, sadly,
linked with inferior GnuTLS on Debian and derivates, which also cannot yet
handle X.509v3 subjectAltName extensions on certificates such as the one
on ☹
