Moving forward, needs to automatically pick something that
handles https urls when one is present. Explicitly setting the fetch
command in affected packages is not scalable.

For curl and wget, we can detect supported protocols automatically
(with `curl --vesion' and `wget --version'), but it is impossible
for tnftp and fetch (do `ldd' and find libssl?).

Also, -current has https support in ftp so nothing special is needed
any more there... which among other things means that unless the
handling is automated we'll never get it fully right.

Anyone working on update net/tnftp with https support one?
