For multiple sites on one server, you probably don't want to make use of
compiled in defaults anyway, unless there are shared files for all sites.
You're probably best off setting image_url_prefix in each site's config
file, to the value for each site. Then, if the sites make use of shared
common/*.html files, change all references in these to refer to
$(IMAGE_URL_PREFIX) instead of /htdig in <img> tags. In each site's
search.html initial search form, you'll need to change any reference to
/htdig to use the appropriate directory for that site. The search.html
must be pure HTML, and can't use template variables as it doesn't get
processed by htsearch.
