Re: Linux build: Dwarf Error: Invalid or unhandled FORM value

This solves the problem:

1. Since the error suggested  :661: the use of `tmpnam' is dangerous, better 
use `mkstemp', changed line 360 in HTWWWStr.c to mkstemp
2. Changed the same between line 646 and 669 in HTInet.c.

And now the lib builds fine on Red Hat 2.4.9-e.12enterprise.
