The htdig indexer follows links. So if your document is not indexed,
the first question is whether it's linked from anywhere and if so,
whether that link was indexed properly.

If the document is not linked from anywhere, there's no way for htdig
to "discover" it in the first place.

It depends on your system. I would expect that fi_FI should work on a
recent RedHat system, though it requires that you have a Finnish
locale installed properly. Is this a localized version of RedHat?
What locales do you see installed?

Sigh. This is the ispell database itself, not the file that generated
it. I don't know if you can reverse the process. You should contact
the person who created the files.
