According to Elsa Chan:

As FAQ 5.16 explains, this happens because htdig didn't index any documents.

You can't use quotes in the start_url, because htdig doesn't parse it as
a quoted string list. See http://www.htdig.org/attrs.html
The port number should be tacked right on to the end of the URL with a
colon, e.g. start_url: http://www.site.net:8001
As for figuring out why it's hanging, and what constitutes a long while,
please see Geoff's response.
