The easiest way to debug htsearch is to run it from the command line. It
will prompt you for any needed values (e.g. words) and then output the
HTML. Running "htsearch -v" will add some debugging information that might
be useful.

Generally you cannot transfer db files from one OS/chip to another. If you
have two computers running the same OS and chip, you should be set. There
are exceptions where you can transfer the db files across OSes, etc, but I
wouldn't count on it.
