I'd think you would want to spider instead of using the file system

No I don't, and google isn't much help. I just set mail to the xpdf
author, but you might also try asking on a group like comp.text.pdf.

Here's some options:
1) use spider.pl with SWISH::Filter
2) if you have a good reason not to spider (like files are not
available on a web server) use the prog-bin/DirTree.pl example program
and copy in the code from SwishSpiderConfig.pl to use SWISH::Filter
3) try the filters listed at http://www.spocom.com/users/gjohnson/mutt/
and use a FileFilter directive. I have not tried those filters.
Google might find other solutions.
