[htdig] Reasons htdig might not find anything??

As a volunteer webspinner for www.maps.org, I built and configured
htdig 3.1.2 on a FreeBSD box to run from:


Even though rundig produced some nice sized db's:

-rw-r--r-- 1 maps maps 3683328 Jul 6 11:49 db.docdb
-rw-r--r-- 1 maps maps 45056 Jul 6 11:49 db.docs.index
-rw-r--r-- 1 maps maps 2859704 Jul 6 11:49 db.wordlist
-rw-r--r-- 1 maps maps 3497984 Jul 6 11:49 db.words.db

htsearch refuses to find any matches, even though these words appear
many times in the db's.

However, htsearch is finding the db's because if change the name of
the db directory, I get an error.

So - if you have any suggestions on what might be causing this, or a
way to debug the htsearch, please reply to me directly at

Thank you!
