Thank you!

I'm unable to get --with-ssl recognized when I run ./configure. Any tips on that?

Here's a slightly modified version that works with OSX 10.10 and also installs with SSL support

cd /usr/local/src
sudo curl -O http://invisible-island.net/datafiles/release/lynx-cur.zip
sudo unzip lynx-cur.zip
cd lynx2-8-9
./configure --with-ssl --mandir=/usr/share/man
make
sudo make install

Worked for me on 10.6.8. Just had to download a different version (http://invisible-mirror.net/archives/lynx/tarballs/lynx2.8.7rel.2.tar.gz) and create the /usr/local/src/directory first.
