Just because the variable isn't in the default htdig.conf file doesn't mean
you can't put it there. :-) I guess I'll revise the text in the htdig.conf

Large files are only indexed up to the "max_doc_size" variable. So if you
have a lot of big files, you'll want to bump this past your largest file.
You don't need to recompile anything, you'll just need to put something
"max_doc_size: 200000" into your htdig.conf file.

The size of the directory is only a problem when you use
automatically-generated directory listings. But I'm sure there are other
words that are not indexed in those files.
