The Debian package for ht://dig is well-done, and the indexer runs
very quickly.  I had search working in half an hour.

I have an ht://Dig search for zgp.org (including the thread-per-page
archives for this list) at http://zgp.org/  

OTOH, debian.org decided not to use ht://dig and went with 
mnoGoSearch instead: http://search.mnogo.ru/  It seems to require
a SQL database though.

(Quick test: If you search zgp.org for "SQL"
you get the "Feuerstein on Oracle" thread at number one:
