Follow-up: Wais and NCSA httpd 1.1

Earlier today, I posted to this list a message asking about my
Wais hyperlinks failing since I had installed NCSA httpd 1.1.

I have resolved this problem, and wanted to share the details with
the list.

To begin with, it turns out that the problem was limited *only* to
Solaris 2.3 Web browsers (specifically, NCSA Mosaic 2.1 and lynx
2.1.1) built with the freeWAIS 0.202 libraries. All my other
systems--Suns running SunOS 4.1.3, RS/6000's running AIX 3.2.5,
and SGI's running IRIX 4.0.5--did not encounter these problems.

Since this was a Solaris-2.3-specific problem, I have rebuilt the
freeWAIS distribution, then rebuilt NCSA Mosaic 2.1. This resolved
the problem. I would presume, although I haven't rebuilt it, that
the problem will go away when I re-do lynx as well.
