another bug in htdig (3.1.6) might be worthy of your attention. It looks
like htdig creates a (temporary) file in /etc/htdig to store some
runtime info (and to signal a rebuild)
I think this info should go into /var rather than /etc

The ht://Dig source package does not create any files in "/etc/htdig"
by default. Period. The configure script can set the various prefix
directories, but a straight "./configure; make; make install" will put
various files in /opt/www/htdig
The *Debian* package and/or affiliated shell/cron scripts may put files
My reading of the Debian bug report is that the /etc/cron.weekly/htdig
script installed as part of your package creates this file.
As I do not use Debian, I cannot give you any more information--only
that it's not an upstream issue.
