Good day everyone!

I have a portupgrade related question. I am behind a proxy and fetch
doesn't appear to cope with it very well. I installed wget and it
works great. I updated the pkgtools.conf to reflect that, however
portupgrade insists on using fetch for some reason. At first I thought
that portupgrade ignored its configuration file, however once or twice
I misstyped something and it did catch it.
Any hints?

P.S. I am running 5.5 if it makes any difference, although I think it shouldn't.

Thanks in advance,
