mod_autoindex is compiled into apache by default so unless whomever
compiled apache specifically disabled it it is most likely there.

In apache you need to have "Indexes" enabled in your httpd.conf. This
is usually done by default and looks something like this once you have
added other options to it:
                <Directory "/path/to/you/root/dir">
                        Options Indexes Includes MultiViews ExecCGI

To utilize it all you need to do is point htdig (start_url:) at a
directory that conatains none of the defualt index files (index.html,
index.htm, index.whatever the sysadmin has added) and apache will spit
out a listing of all the files in the directory. Htdig will then
follow all those links to wherever you allow it with limit_urls_to:

        limit_urls_to: /path/to/dir/

You can also make a web page that contains links to the directories you
want to index and use that as your start_url:

        limit_urls_to: /path/to/dir/
