I was wondering if you still want to use this method for creating the .h
files. There's also a Perl script which works ok.

I changed the Amaya/libwww Makefile.am so that the www method isn't used
anymore. This means that everyone must have Perl, instead of www,  in order to
be able to compile libwww. If you're starting from scratch, it's more 
probable you'll have Perl.

What do you (user community) think, shall I make this change? If we decide
to keep www, I'll fix the Makefile.am bug then.
