Hi Folks,

I installed htdig3.1.5 yesterday. Everything works fine;) many thanks to
all developers and contributors.

I still have many symlinks in my site that cause an unacceptable number of
duplicate URL's in htdig search results; therefore, I'd like to use the
patch that was originally written by Warren:

and later adopted by Gilles and modified by me:

and later reposted by Warren:

The latter two, (practically identical,) were made for 3.1.4, but they
apply perfectly to 3.1.5; however, compilation stops with the following
[snip] In method `int Retriever::Need2Get(char *)': type `String' is not a base type for type `StringList'
gmake[1]: *** [Retriever.o] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jjah/tmp/htdig-3.1.5/htdig'
gmake: *** [all] Error 1

How can the patch be modified, (patched;), to work with 3.1.5? I'd like
to place the patch in 3.1.5 folder of the unofficial patch site for others
who are in my situation.

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
