They don't quite use the same compilers etc. AFAIK, the programs you
mention are all written in C, whereas ht://Dig is written in C++. As you
posted yourself, it's using g++.

I'd be glad to annotate the sections of the autoconf code in configure.in.
The configure script only has to do library selection on machines
requiring -lsocket or -lnsl. As you correctly point out, this isn't needed
on Digital UNIX. There might be a problem with the Makefile and/or the
C++ setup, but the configure script isn't the culprit.
I just tried 3.1.2 again, right from the website and it built cleanly.
There must be something we're missing. The only difference I noticed just
now is that I'm using gcc-18.104.22.168 v. your 2.8.1. Then again, did you say
you could build versions before 3.1.0b4 without problems?
