installing gnatsweb

Is there any documentation on installing gnatsweb other than what is
in the file gnatsweb-2.7beta.tar.gz?  I am new to gnats and gnatsweb
and have spent weeks trying to get gnatsweb to work without any luck.

I have installed gnats on a Redhat 7.0 system by installing the following
two rpms:

address@hidden rpm -qa | fgrep gnats

I have downloaded gnatsweb from here:

I have followed the installation steps in gnatsweb-2.7beta/INSTALL
up to step 5 where it says:

    5. Run the tests to make sure the setup is OK.  Specify a
       username/password/database_name on the command line like so:

           make test USERNAME=anon PASSWORD=pw DATABASE=db_alias

This is the first I have seen a username/password mentioned.  The
Redhat gnats rpms don't come with a password file so I created this:

address@hidden cat /usr/share/gnats/gnats-db/gnats-adm/gnatsd.access

I can't find any information on what to use for the DATABASE so I
tried this:

address@hidden make test USERNAME=wes PASSWORD=test 
Content-type: text/html

<H1>Software error:</H1>
<PRE>Can't call method &quot;header&quot; on an undefined value at 
line 2117, &lt;SOCK&gt; line 1.
For help, please send mail to this site's webmaster, giving this error message 
and the time and date of the error.

value at line 2117, <SOCK> line 1.
make: *** [test] Error 255

I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what.  Does anyone
use gnatsweb?  Does it really work?  HELP!
