The rundig script is a sample shell script that performs the
necessary commands to create a database. In particular, it calls
htdig and then htmerge and then if necessary, calls htfuzzy to create
the synonym and endings databases.

You can continue to use rundig to update your databases or edit it to
your heart's content. Or you can take a look at some of the
rundig-like scripts others have contributed

(I hope this answers your question.)
