Dropping in a new htsearch will certainly take care of the security
problem. However, if you read the release notes:
<> you'll see that there are a
number of other bugs fixed between 3.1.2 and 3.1.5. So I'd recommend
installing the other binaries and taking a look at the templates used
in 3.1.5 in installdir/. They will not be installed by default with
"make install" but they do use some new features of 3.1.5 and should
produce more HTML 4.0-compliant results.
