	According to http://wget.sunsite.dk/ wget-1.9.1 is the latest
	stable version.

	The ports tree does carry 1.9.1, but its name is 'wget-devel', which
	at least for me, implies that is under development and is not
	yet released as 'stable' (this is also made clear in the
	pkg-descr). This is not the case anymore and should be changed.

	OTOH, ftp/wget is at v1.8.2 which is now old.

	I'm CCing both maintainers, one of which is ports at .


	I myself don't know how to fix it, but I suppose that a committer
	should :) Anyone listening?
