Tried the tar (found it), but it won't work w/o a git tree.

What's the point of a tar that needs online access?

Ishtar:tools/wget2/wget2> ./bootstrap
./bootstrap: Bootstrapping from checked-out wget2 sources...
./bootstrap: getting gnulib files...
fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount point /home)
Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set).
Looks like wget2 is "infected" with the gnulib virus.  I've seen it
in other projects -- seems to take up alot of resources and tries
to spread itself.  Hmmmm....this is not very easy to build...
