I'll change the makefile. In the meantime, you can compile by moving the
modules -I to be used before the . and /usr/local/ includes.

 gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I../../modules/md5 -I. -I. -I../.. -I/usr/local/include
 -I../../modules/expat/xmlparse 
 -DW3C_ICONS=\"/usr/local/share/w3c-libwww\" -g -O2 -c HTAABrow.c  -fPIC
 -DPIC -o .libs/HTAABrow.lo

In a perfect world, the autoconf and makefile should have used your md5 library
if it was more recent than the libwww one, instead of compiling a new one.
