    Ideally, I'd recommend using the latest 3.2.0 beta snapshot.
    The latest ht://Dig development snapshots are available at
    <http://www.htdig.org/files/snapshots/>. There are
    snapshots of development code for both the 3.1.x stable
    series, and the 3.2.0 beta series. Use whichever meets your
    needs best. Most known bugs are already fixed in the
    snapshots, but be aware that they are still works in progress
    and may contain new bugs.

    However, you if you really want to run 3.1.6, try running
    setting the environment variable CPPFLAGS=-Wno-deprecated

    I hope this helps,

    This does allow configure to work, and the binaries mostly
    work, but I get an ABORT from htnotify.

    So, I just downloaded version 3.2.0b3.

    This has the same configure problem. I think that whatever
    test you are using to determine if stdlibc++ is installed
    may be broken - it is definately installed on this machine.

    I will now try the same env. variable to see if I can get
    3.2.0b3 to configure...

    Ahh... I should have emphasised *snapshot*... 3.2.0b3 is
    several years old.

    The 3.2.0b4 snapshot (about to be released as 3.2.0b5) has
    had this bug fixed. Go to
    <http://www.htdig.org/files/snapshots/> and download one of
    the 3.2.0b4 snapshots from there.

    I get exactly the same error and libstdc++ is also installed.
    Any clues?
