I have just installed ht://Dig. The make and make install appeared to
be successfull, but I can't seem to get the rundig script to find the
files I want indexed. Below is sample output from a run.

ironhorse> rundig
htdig: Run complete
htdig: 2 servers seen:
htdig: :0 0 documents
htdig: 0 documents
htmerge: Unable to open word list file

I have tried changing the start_url and limit_urls_to values. For that
last run they were

limit_urls_to: external .html

The pages I want to index are all in the /htdocs/external directory of
the ironhorse machine (which is also the machine I have installed
ht://Dig to).

I also tried to run with values of:

limit_urls_to: ${start_url}

,with the same results. I have always left the exclude_urls as their
default of
exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi

Are there any other variables I need to be modifying?
