Thanks for the quick response.

Yes, this was an upgrade, but I removed the previous install (actually
moved it to a far far away place :). After it blew up the first time, I
checked the space again, deleted it all, and re-ran, still same error,
same place :(.

I will run it again with a -a on both htdig and htmerge to check this
suggestion out.

It was the cleanest by far of the htdig installs I've done here on an AIX
box. unsigned int -> unsigned long in the htlib/ which was
noted in the changelog as fixed were the only changes I made...
