Andrew,

Thanks for your reply. We have several Sparc machines here and I plan to
test htdig on one of these at some point. I have a couple of other
questions in the meantime, though. There are two configuration files:
one called CONFIG and the other called CONFIG.solaris. Should both of
these be edited? Are they both read by the compiler? Also, is it OK to
take out the $variables that come before some of the entries in the
CONFIG file and replace them with the full path? Thanks again.

-Paul
