Thanks Achim,
That confirms I should push that back upstream.
I'm still working on ITP wget2 sub-packages to upgrade from wget.
Problems getting wget2 https to work, either building with gnutls, or to build
at all with OpenSSL.
I think I'll back out the suggested upstream patch, make my own more minimal
tweaks, and see how that works.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
