You can't. Well, that is to say if you're indexing through HTTP,
there's no way for htdig to know the difference--if it has a
different URL, it will be indexed twice presently. You can turn this
off in most servers, however. For example in Apache, the directive is
-FollowSymLinks set in an Options directive.
