Bug#389844: khelpcenter uses htdig to build indexes, but htdig is only suggested

Package: khelpcenter
Version: 4:3.5.4-2+b1
Severity: minor

A minor annoyance.

khelpcenter uses htdig to build indexes of manpages on the local system.  Before the indexes are built, it will state that the indexes cannot be found and 
prompt the user to build them.  The indexing process does not obviously fail unless you click on the more information button where you will see that htdig 
"failed" (actually not present to run).

Perhaps khelpcenter should not prompt the user to create indexes if htdig is not installed, or perhaps warn the user that index creation will fail without 
first installing htdig.

Alternatively, htdig can be set as a dependency of khelpcenter.
