Only with some older versions of ht://dig in takes hours and days to
build the root2word.db, word2root.db. !! Since 3.1.12 (i cant remember)
it is very fast. I use the GermanWordlist too and it needs only a few
minutes to build the databases on my PPro200 Mhz with htdig 3.1.14. The
size of this 2 files is to big to send it with email. For the
root2word.db we need 5.9 MB and for the word2root.db 11.6 MB. When its
possible for you i can but these files on our Downloadserver (gzipped
3.4 MB).

with best regards
