Actually, it's db.wordlist. That looks like the sort of error you get
when htdig doesn't index any documents at all, e.g. if the http server
isn't even running on the system you're trying to index. If you run
"rundig -vvv", you'll get some more meaningful diagnostics. You need
at least two "v" options on rundig or htdig before you'll get the

        Unable to build connection with

error message.
