Summary0006450: theHarvester, dorks.txt can't be found

When executing theHarvester with google-dorks enabled (-g, --google-dorks) it's unable to find the necessary dorks.txt. Kali, by default, puts dorks.txt, along with other files presumably necessary for other functions, in /usr/share/dicts/theHarvester when they should be in /etc/theHarvester/wordlists .

Steps To Reproduce

Use -g when searching with -b google , e.g. $theHarvester -d -g -b google

Additional Information

Additional possible bugs noticed with theHarvester were:
Executing theHarvester without sudo privilege results in (usually non-fatal) "unable to open database file" error echoed. Seemed to be fatal when executing with -b all.
Executing with arguments that require the api-keys.yaml file echos "api-key.yaml file not found", although I haven't altered the file to use any, so that may be why.

Someone could look into these, but they don't seem to be a huge deal right now.

Oh, also, (#mv /usr/share/dict/theHarvester /etc/theHarvester/wordlist ) confirmed fixes the problem
