The server appears to respond with 406 Not Acceptable to all requests
that have libwww-perl in the User-Agent header.  This is an issue that
needs to be addressed in the server's configuration.


$ HEAD -U http://www.seniorsnoworlando.org/links.htm | head -n 4
HEAD http://www.seniorsnoworlando.org/links.htm
User-Agent: lwp-request/5.834 libwww-perl/5.837

406 Not Acceptable


$ HEAD -U -H "User-Agent: foo"
http://www.seniorsnoworlando.org/links.htm | head -n 4
HEAD http://www.seniorsnoworlando.org/links.htm
User-Agent: foo
