To overcome the problems of generating .h files on Unix, I have updated the
Makefile.am (the automake make files) to be more robust so that if the line
mode browser isn't installed on your system it tries to generate them using
a perl script.

I have also updated the documentation on how to get boot strapped at

	http://www.w3.org/Library/cvs.html#Boot

In order to get this change, please do the following

	cd libwww
	cvs -z3 update -d

This step is described in

	http://www.w3.org/Library/cvs.html#update

Then run the following commands

	aclocal; automake; autoconf

as described in

	http://www.w3.org/Library/cvs.html#Boot

now rerun the configure script with the options that you want, FOR EXAMPLE

	CFLAGS='-g -Wall' ./configure --with-zlib --with-regex

and then a normal make:

	make

I hope this will make life easier - the steps above are normally mostly
done automatically but making them explicit help prevent potential problems.

Changes are as always described at

	http://db.w3.org/Library/latest.sql

Thanks,

Henrik
