I'll guess from what you've said that there is a directory called 
/var/www/htdig/conf which contains a file called htdig.conf as part of your 
htdig installation. This is the dault directory where htdig expect to find 
config files and the default htdig.conf file.

If that is so, then you need to create the symlink called htdig-mailman in 
the /var/www/htdig/conf, pointing at /usr/local/mailman/archives/htdig.
