When I look at those, none of them except linklint say anything
about finding orphans (and linklint's orphan finder doesn't work, as
I mentioned in my initial query).  Are there secret flags for some
of those programs that I'm not finding?

It still boggles my mind that this is so hard to find; isn't it
something every web admin everywhere needs?
