port to bsdi / TOUPPER problem

Hi. I am porting WWW to BSDI. So far mostly so good, here are some

There are some stray dependencies in the Line Mode makefiles that point
hard coded paths at /tmp for making stuff. /tmp here is tiny, so I
put the stuff in $(HOME)/tmp, but that didn't quite do the job.

It took some amount of fiddling to get everything to build in the
right place, I hacked at it until it all compiled ok but will have
to go back and see what exactly it was that I did...

HTFile.c didn't compile until I commented out one of the two times
that "tcp.h" was included - the compiler complained about a duplicate
definition of "struct stat".

After all that it compiles fine and seems to work, and 'www -source'
prints out what looks like real genuine HTML sources. However, it
appears that there's some critical place where TOUPPER is not working
right, since the lower-case <a href=foo:bar>foobar</a> tags don't
get recognized, and the upper-case <TITLE>foobar</TITLE> tags do.
This kind of ruins the hypertext effect :)
