You're right, I've mixed up the "configure" shell script with ht://Dig configuration file.

So, to Juan:

PS : it seems you are trying to build/compile ht://Dig yourself. If so, if you are not an experienced Unix system administrator, let me remind you that ht://Dig is available as a binary package on every good Unix. On my Debian, I just had to request the installation of package "htdig" and everything was up and running. Binary packages are specially interesting for a package like ht://Dig which needs several things to work, not just a single executable.
