	Yes, there are prior to installation, but after a gmake.
	They live in 
	w3c-libwww-5.1m/LineMode/src/www , and
	w3c-libwww-5.1m/ComLine/src/w3c I think,
	but I am not at the machine right now.  They are shellscripts. 
	The binaries of the same name are only produced by 
	gmake install
	which requires these scripts to work correctly.  Incidentally
	the makefile will not work with Sun's make, and will only 
	work the gnu make on my system.

	Furthermore, -nocache does not work for www, and I can find
	nothing to tell me how to disable caching.  It continues to
	complain about others using the cache.

	The compilation goes OK, it is only the shellscripts that
	are incorrect, and also this caching problem.
