The file system does not look in the content of the document for links. 
If you provide a directory as a starting point, swish-e indexes every
file it finds in that directory and any subdirectory.  But if you
provide a file as a starting point (like you did), swish-e only indexes
that file.  Try changing your IndexDir to:

IndexDir /usr/local/apache/htdocs
