Hi, Stéphane. Glad that worked. To build htdig under Cygwin, did
you need to make any other changes than that one fopen() call? If so,
could you send patches, for the record.

Also, if your binaries were built for a fairly generic configuration,
I think it would be great to put them up on the ftp/web site for others
to use. Would you be willing to package them up to distribute to others?
