Very good question. Although I think the question would be better directed to
the htdig crew than to curl people.

I had a quick look in the htdig 3.2 docs and it mentions a parameter for the
config file named 'external_protocols' which seems the one to use:

It mentions how you specify an external program to get pages from specified
protocols. From the example on that page, I'd guess that you add a line
similar to this in your htdig config file:

        external_protocols: https /full/path/to/

The must be written to deal with the parameters sent to it
from htdig (as mentioned on that page) and it must also output the results to
stdout in the format that htdig defines.

I hope this helps. If you're lucky, someone using htdig for https has already
done this and then a working https-script could be available.
