Nutch currently only does MD5-based duplicate elimination.  So only 
exact duplicates are eliminated.

There's been a fair amount of work on better methods.  For example, 
there was Broder et. al.'s "Syntactic Clustering" work 

However I've never seen anyone demonstrate how such methods can be 
efficiently applied to huge collections.  Perhaps they can, but it's not 
obvious to me.  I've also not followed this literature closely.
