The other option might be to use a "find" command to get the pathnames
of all the symlinks, and convert them into their equivalent URLs (e.g.
using sed). Put that list into a file which would be fed into the
exclude_urls attribute. E.g.:
exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi `/etc/htdig/urls_to_exclude`
find /home/httpd/html -type l -print | \
sed 's|/home/httpd/html|http://www.mydomain.org|' \
