If you need the -c option to make htsearch work on the commandline,
then you'll probably need an

<input type=hidden name=config value=whatever>

in your search form, where "whatever" is the name of your conf file
without the directory or .conf included (if you need htsearch to look
in a different directory for its config files, I think you can only
achieve this with a recompile.)
