It is unlikely that you have a lynx binary in /usr/ports/www. If lynx
is already installed it should be in /usr/local/bin and should be in
your path, so typing:
lynx .
in /usr/ports/www will allow you to use it as a local browser and look

If your problem is that you are trying to install lynx, then cd into the
+directory /usr/ports/www/lynx and type:
make install clean

If you are online at the time, this will fetch the lynx source, build
the binary, install it and clean up a bit.

hope that helps
