Usage: SwishSpider localpath url?

Have been using SWISH-E for a number of years now on our servers and would 
really like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make phrase searches a 
reality -- not to mention the addition of all the other very worthwhile 
features... Am running 2.0beta4 on our public servers and have had nothing 
but positive feedback from users about the improvements.

Pulled the following note out of the list archives and wondered if someone 
might be able to help me troubleshoot a bit further. Am hoping to make some 
small indexes of external sites and merge them with our current filesystem 
indexes, but am unsure about how to interpret the message "SwishSpider 
localpath url" message. Have checked the TmpDir setting to no avail and 
hoped that someone else has conquered this speed bump. I've never worked 
with the HTTP method before and am a bit unclear about which patches (if 
any) I ought to be using on swishspider as well.
