Thank you for your step by step explanation -- this is not an irony,
I mean it! But unfortunately, even if you use NetBSD's "ftp" the
problem remains. I had already tried wget and got the same result.
I diff'd the files between "ftp"'s and wget's. No difference.
The problem looks the same as misc/4642 (as Dave Huang suggested).
I had said "white spaces", but it's wrong, I guess. This problem seems
to be caused by "blank lines" - what Dave used.
Sorry, I had misunderstood the problem itself and called "white spaces".

I see. Thanks again.
