Bug#475885: htdig: Creates db files in /etc

Package: htdig
Version: 1:3.2.0b6-5
Severity: serious
Justification: policy violation (FHS)

htdig, after installation, creates db files in /etc/htdig, with a total
of 6M!
# du -hs /etc/htdig/*.db
2.2M	/etc/htdig/root2word.db
92K	/etc/htdig/synonyms.db
2.8M	/etc/htdig/word2root.db

The /etc directory is for configuration files/information only, not for
cache/db files.
A directory like /var/cache/htdig or /var/lib/htdig seems more suitable.
