[htdig] htsearch returns garbage .. need help

hi -

first, i must admit that i'm still a linux newbie - and i'm bringing
this up because i'm not sure if the problem i'm experiencing is a result
of htsearch or if i've configured something incorrectly in apache.

when i run htsearch at a basic prompt, it returns visably clean html.
but when i try to pass it values from a web page (using the GET method,
correct? the search.html file that comes with the distribution uses
POST, which returns POST not supported for this URL ..) it returns
gibberish.

by gibberish, i mean:

mon_start__libz.so.1_DYNAMIC_GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE__init_finideflateInit_de

flatedeflateEndinflateEndinflateinflateInit_libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2cerrclose_

_11fstreambaseendl__FR7ostream__ls__7ostreamc__vt_3ios__ls__7ostreamPCvflush__

7ostream__rtti_usercin__rtti_si__check_eh_spec__vt_7istream.3ios__throw__ls__7

ostreamPCc__deregister_frame_infoterminate__Fvgetline__7istreamPcic__cp_pop_ex

and much, much more - this is one of the few chunks that doesn't have
high-bit characters in it.

anyhow, if someone can suggest what i'm doing wrong, it would be greatly
appreciated.

thanks very much.
