Did you run the htmerge binary afterwards? When htdig ran correctly, there
should be some files in your ./htdig/db directory now. One of those files is
a wordlist.

Please read the documentation of the htdig.conf. It *should* run, but
there can be conditions that prevent you from running it (are you behind
a firewall? and so on).
