wget is one of my favourite tools for downloading websites. Unfortunately, it is not part of OS X standard, so when I upgraded to a new Mac w/ 10.9 Mavericks I had to install it from scratch.
Caveat being that, upon configure, you may get the following error message:
configure: error: --with-ssl=gnutls was given, but GNUTLS is not available.
Fix? Configure to use openssl instead:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ssl=openssl
Thanks to the folks at Coolest Guides on the Planet for the tip.
