By this, I assume you mean they're not indexed.

Try running htdig -vvv and take a look at what happens when it encounters
a link to a PDF file. Does it reject the link? Or does it get to the link
and try to index it later?

If it's the former, then one of your limits is set incorrectly. (e.g.
bad_extensions, valid_extensions, exclude_urls, limit_urls_to ...)

If it's the latter, then make sure you can run a .doc or a .pdf through
the external converter itself and get reasonable-looking output.
