Assuming the problem is lack of ssl support rather than the
disinclination to use shttp, some illegality problem, or whatever :

you could recompile lynx with shttp support, which it is quite capable

`lynx -version` of my last compile claims to be:

Lynx Version 2.8.3rel.1 (23 Apr 2000)
libwww-FM 2.14, SSL-MM 1.4, OpenSSL 0.9.6

Try http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~jeffwong/lynxstuff/SSL/index.html
or http://www.moxienet.com/lynx/  
for details and code. 

or you could extend emacs w3... which'd be cool ;-p
