Maybe they should just start reading manual pages and/or get used to
basic mathematics. Besides if you don't need the ``recursive get''
feature of wget I'd highly recommend using curl instead. wget
doesn't support HTTP/1.1 and does even corrupt your downloads in
certain cases.

BTW, I've just read the response on their mailinglist. It's disgusting.
Apparently, they have never ever looked at the POSIX specs. Those
are online for free(!).

Oh and since when does pkgsrc use beta versions? Or do they simply
refuse to maintain their website?
