What does your /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/ directory contain? 
Just your archive directories? I suspect that ht://Dig requires at 
least an index page or such to start its recursion.

I usually index each list's directory separately, and these 
individual directories contain the index.html file which ht://Dig 
knows to grab when its argument is a directory...

I suppose you can leave a dummy index.html file in your 
/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/ directory and have it contain 
links to all your individual list directories.

Good luck, Igor
