You could always use url_part_aliases to rewrite the urls as you want on
the target system. E.g.:
url_part_aliases: http://localhost/rfc *rfcs
for htdig, then
url_part_aliases: file:/whatever/path/you/want/rfc *rfcs
url_part_aliases: http://my.domain.org/docs/network/rfc *rfcs
for htsearch on the target system.
