I'm using an old distro of Slackware due to incompatibilities of
non-OSS with newer glibc.
I have a much newer distro on my laptop, so have newer src. I should
copy over, or if that fails, at least *try* to compile, a newer wget on
Eventually, of course, I'll have to do a major upgrade and forego the
non-OSS but not yet. Was it Augustine who, as a libertine youth,
prayed, "Oh Lord, make me righteous. But not yet." ?
