Well, com_err broken openssl which broke wget with "ssl" USE flag set.
I forgot to mention that part.
Disable "ssl" USE flag when you rebuild wget, then you can download
everything else you need to rebuild. When you're done, you can rebuild
wget with SSL and should probably do a revdep-rebuild to see if
anyhing else got missed. If you don't have the current wget sources in
distfiles, see if you have /any/ and try to rebuild the exact version,
that way you don't need to download manually or copy from another PC.
