Hi, Ellen. First of all, you should always send these questions to
the list, and not to me personally. I don't have all the answers.
See http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html#q1.16

According to ellenliu:

They're in http://www.htdig.org/files/snapshots/

However, if you don't need any of the new features in the 3.2 series, you're
probably better off with 3.1.5.

We've never seen anything like this before on Red Hat Linux systems of any
version. Certainly not on 6.2. As I said last time, you may very well be
missing some critical packages from your Red Hat distribution which are
needed to compile and install software.

The other thing I'm noticing is that there seems to be a problem with
execution of scripts on your system. How did you extract the files from
the .tar.gz distributions of either 3.1.5 or 3.2.0b2? Did you use chmod
on any of the files, and in doing so turn off execute permissions on them?
If you did, that's definitely going to be a problem!
