Not quite, but you could try to work around that by using a wrapper that
calls htsearch once for the first page and N times for every follow-up
page (you'll have to mess around with some variables for displaying the
page/match number). You might also call htsearch with matchesperpage=32767
and try to split up the result into multiple pages (ack!), but that might
slow down the search process considerably.

Or you "simply" apply a patch to htsearch ,-)
