I take it since the following message goes out over stderr it's some kind
of error.
sh: line 0: test: .: binary operator expected

This error happens after makepkg gets used to make and install
lynx-current and happened earlier with lynx.
To clear this error, do I need to adjust some configuration on this end?

Generally means that there is an unquoted argument in a shell 'test', e.g.

if [ $var = 'some string' ]

or

if test $var = 'some string'

In both equivalent cases above, if $var contains a 'space', the test fails
with the error you report. Double check your PKGBUILD or and of the install
scripts.
