Description bf 2007-11-17 01:50:01 UTC
The use of --with-curses-dir=/usr in CONFIGURE_ARGS causes the makefile to prepend a  -L/usr preceding the -L/usr/local when linking with ssl, causing the port to always use the base ssl library rather than that of security/openssl, even when WITH_OPENSSL_PORT is set.  Here's one way to fix it (of course, in the future, if security/gnutls or devel/ncurses or devel/libslang2 support is enabled, a better fix will be required):

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    www/lynx             Makefile 
  Added files:
    www/lynx/files       pkg-message.in 
  - With latest Lynx (2.8.6), no need to add --with-curses-dir. It works fine
    with/without devel/ncurses installed. This also causes problem when
    you specify to use OpenSSL from ports, as we add -L/usr before -L/usr/local.
  - Add OPENSSLBASE to --with-ssl, no need to patch configurate script anymore.
  - Add some instructions for using SSL
