htdig: Digging a site which requires a browser (client) certificate

One of the sites I am attempting to dig is an extranet site which has
two-factor authentication: You need a certificate and
username/password. My options are:

1. Have HTDIG use a certificate (???) and the -u option for username
and password. Problem is ... how do you make HTDIG present a
certificate when it is challenged for one?

2. Install HTDIG on that web server, have it dig the site (make .work
file with -a option), transfer the work file over to the main search
server and HTMERGE it in.

Which one is the best? Any other options?
