I would blame the port security/portaudit ;-)

Read also the manpages ports(7) (keyword DISABLE_VULNERABILITES) and 
portaudit(1) to learn more about this and to find out how you can 
override this stopper  in case that you really want to do it.

By the way, see also fetch(1) for an alternative utility or use the port 
ftp/wget-devel for a recent version of wget.
