There is internally a two-step process of copying, after everyting has
compiled:  first the executable is compiles in the src subdirectory,
but after that, at the end of `make <system-name>', it is copied to the
directory above that (the directory probably called lynx2-7 where you
invoked the `make'.)  From there, `make install' would copy the binary to
the place in the makefile you chose.

For whatever reason, the first copying fails, maybe you don't have enough
disk space.  But you should have a working lynx binary in the src
directory.  Just try to invoke `./src/lynx'.  You could copy that by hand
to whatever place you like.
