It means that you're running Apache with FancyIndexing turned on. This
generates links at the top of the columns to sort the directory index by
name, size, date, etc.

You probably will want to either:
a) Turn off this behavior in Apache -- I believe the option is
b) Enter the patterns into exclude_urls, e.g.:
exclude_urls: ?N=D ?N=A ?S=D ?S=A ?M=D ?M=A ...

If you do not supply a password to htdig, it will be rejected when it
attempts to access password-protected areas. So if parts of your site are
protected, you will need to supply the password for them to be indexed.
