You need to use the new 3.08b2 version. There are some major memory leaks
in the 3.08b1. I had the same problem which went away when I tried 3.08b2.
It compiles no problem under Linux.

Also, for those struggling with exclude option, I found the logic reversed
in htsearch/ Here are my changes. The commented
out lines are the original.

line 108:

// Return true if the specified URL should be counted towards the results.
Display::includeURL(char *url)
    if (limitTo && limitTo->FindFirst(url) < 0)
        return 0;
// if (excludeFrom && excludeFrom->FindFirst(url) < 0)
        if (excludeFrom && excludeFrom->FindFirst(url) <= 0)
// return 0;
            return 1;
// return 1;
            return 0;
