Yes, Henri Gomez just reported to me this morning that the glibc-based
RPMs for htdig, build on a Red Hat 5.0 system, don't work on 6.0,
apparently because of libc incompatibilities. You should grab the source
RPM and rebuild it on your system (rpm --rebuild htdig-3.1.2-0.src.rpm),
or start from scratch with the source tarball, then things should work fine.
