For htsearch alone this is resonably easy, the following snippet
from '' (in two copies) is responsible for its invocation.

  {htsearch "\stringvalue{pattern}"}
  \tab{15} Reference documentation ({\em *} wild card is not accepted).

We should use '{\$SPAD/bin/htsearch "\stringvalue{pattern}"}' or
'{\$AXIOM/bin/htsearch "\stringvalue{pattern}"}' instead.  
But there is also a lot of references to 'viewAlone' (this can be
solved with extra sed rule). 'spadclient' use wrong path...
