No. I don't have it and so far I haven't missed it. If someone can have a
completely working system fit for everyday use without missing this
program, then it's definitely BLFS material and doesn't belong in the LFS
book. wget would be several orders of magnitude more useful as an addition
to LFS and even it is not going in (and rightfully so).


goto doesn't screw up programs.
Programmers screw up programs.
