Tracker could not index .doc files by default (Intrepid)

Asked by Ronny Becker

In Intrepid - by default - tracker is not able to index (fulltext) .doc Documents because elinks is not installed. So the package dependency is not correct and has to be updated. You won`t get any error messages - only on debug mode you get a hint, but it says that the text could not be converted to utf8. If you try the msword filter on command line, you get the hint that elinks is missing.

With elinks installed .doc Documents are indexed and searchable.
