I don't quite follow. You say the PDF files are rejected, but htdig -vvv
indicates they are parsed?

Do you mean to say they are tossed out by htmerge?

If so, I'd make sure the PDF files actually contain text. Some programs
write PDF files that are just graphics or bitmaps and so these cannot be
indexed. What sort of indication do you have that they are parsed when you
run htdig -vvv?
