Many times this results in a 'local file time doesn't match remote'
errors which doesn't happen with wget or axel. If using -F the checksum
won't match, at least from my experiments. 

It also happen that fetch produce sometimes 'File unavailable (e.g.,
file not found, no access)', while with FETCH_CMD=/usr/bin/ftp make
fetch works.
