htdig: Host header support for htdig

Has anyone added support for the Host: header part of a HTTP/1.1 request
to htdig?

Finally was able to debug a problem with a page on one of our servers not
getting indexed. The URL showed up as being indexed, but htdig requested
the page without sending Host: and the hostname of the URL.

This causes it to pull up a different page when retrieving a page from a
non-ip based virtual host.
