KDE does not rely on any 'system services' regardnig htdig. It is used
to index the manuals in the kde helpcenter in order to make them
If you want to test it, apt-get install khelpcenter4 and try to index
(In the left pane, select the Search Options tab. first time, it should
offer to build indexes. Later on, you can manually reindex by pressing
the 'Build Search Index' button in that tab)
