It does seem odd to do this doesn't it.

Well, I need the returned pages to have a proper
query string, as all our urls have plenty of "&"s in them,
so this means a 3.1.5 created database. We can't get
3.1.5 to compile on IRIX, which is what the site runs on,
but we can compile 3.1.5 on Solaris. However we
can download 3.1.3 from the SGI site to run on IRIX.
So.... create the index from the solaris machine to
get the proper urls created, move them over to IRIX,
and use 3.1.3 on IRIX to read them.

I hadn't given much though to architecture, but that
is a mistake. Perhaps it's only a big/little endian thing
to be concerned about.. with a little luck.

The other option is to query htsearch on a remote
solaris box from irix, but then two machines
have to be up and running, and the solaris box
is really for development.
