Yes, either that, or if you prefer to make use of RPM, grab the source
RPM and rebuild it on your system.

You didn't mention which version of Linux you're running, or which
RPM file you installed. There are two different builds for the i386
architecture. The htdig-3.1.2-0.i386.rpm package was built on the
libc5-based Red Hat 4.2, and is probably only suitable for 4.2, while
htdig-3.1.2-0glibc.i386.rpm was built on the glibc-based Red Hat Linux
5.0, and should be used for 5.0 through 5.2 (no promises on 6.0, though
it may work). I have no idea whether these would work on non Red Hat
systems, so for those you ought to rebuild.
