lynx 2.8.9 non-working -traversal for https site link checking

Instead of Lynx to recursively check for broken website links, use wget website broken link checking.

lynx text web browser had a built-in facility for recursively checking websites for broken links by

lynx -traversal

However at least through version 2.8.9 that comes with Ubuntu 16.04, with any https:// website, one simply gets the error

lynx: Start file could not be found or is not text/html or text/plain Exiting…

as a result, one resorts to wget website broken link checking
