freebsd-update is a /bin/sh shell script. Looking at the source I can
see it uses /usr/bin/fetch, so it's probably just a matter of reading
the fetch(1) & fetch(3) manpages to get it to do what you want.
If all else fails, you might be able to hack the freebsd-update script
to use Wget instead of Fetch, but I doubt you'll need to go to that
