If there is an alternative, yes.

In this case, IBM Spectrum Protect (TSM to its friends) comes with a
guestimated dozen different license files, and I found it safest to assume
that any rights but that to download and install the client are jealously
guarded by a host of IBM Lawyers(tm).

So there is only One Upstream for this package.

Still interesting that pkgsrc fetch < curl < wget (which succeeded, so I
settled with it).
