Very strange. I assume the UID running htdig has permission to write
to the directory $TMPDIR?

I assume you see this with "htfuzzy endings"

For whatever reason, the included regex code does not work well on
BSD systems. It would be nice to come up with a configure test for
this, but in the meantime, the solution is to remove all references
to regex from the htlib/ and rebuild. This should use the
system's native regex.
