Hi Jeff,

the package containing htdig and friends is called "htdig" - at least
in my RedHat distribution. Its purpose (from rpm -qi):

The ht://Dig system is a complete world wide web indexing and searching
system for a small domain or intranet. This system is not meant to replace
the need for powerful internet-wide search systems like Lycos, Infoseek,
Webcrawler and AltaVista. Instead it is meant to cover the search needs for
a single company, campus, or even a particular sub section of a web site. As
opposed to some WAIS-based or web-server based search engines, ht://Dig can
span several web servers at a site. The type of these different web servers
doesn't matter as long as they understand the HTTP 1.0 protocol.
ht://Dig is also used by KDE to search KDE's HTML documentation.

ht://Dig was developed at San Diego State University as a way to search the
various web servers on the campus network.

Best regards and a happy new year,
