Can't really give anything helpful, but note that wget was designed to
be a program, rather than a library, and this is reflected in many
places and ways in the source code. For instance, it expects to write
things to stderr, many functions may not work properly without other
functions and initializations having been set up first, re-entrancy is
probably not a common forethought in many cases. You might be better off
simply spawning the executable directly from your program, rather than
trying to redesign it as a DLL. It is not a task for the faint-hearted.
