FreeBSD Port: wget-1.8.2_6

Hi Simon,

I'm just curious why we are hanging on to Wget 1.8.x as we are. The Wget
website clearly states "The latest stable version of Wget is 1.9.1.". In
fact, we don't even have the 1.9.x line in ports (ftp/wget is 1.8.x,
ftp/wget-devel is 1.10.x).

Why not bring ftp/wget up to 1.9.x ?
