I had the same problem building htdig on BSDI. nl_types.h was included in
later snapshots of htdig-3.2.0b3; however, that header file requires
another header file, features.h, which is missing in my system;(

I have extracted features.h from GNU glibc distribution and placed it in
my htlib directory. Unfortunately features.h file requires yet another
header file, stubs.h, which is neither in BSDI system nor in GNU glibc;(

There is a chance that stubs.h would also require other heather file(s),
and those files require yet other files ... ad infinitum;( ;)))

In short, don't hold your breath.
