The answer to supplying custom arguments to portage's download command is exactly where it should be - in a man page.
equery files portage
will list them, it's in section 5

Is there any way I can configure (pass arguments to) emerge's "wget" (used for fetching) to limit it's rate to a certain amount
I don't want to make a global/system-wide change, just for portage.
I did find a way to limit the bandwidth while syncing. All I had to do was to put this on my /etc/make.conf:
PORTAGE_RSYNC_EXTRA_OPTS="--partial --progress --delete-after --human-readable --bwlimit=50"
I do know there is parameter for wget, which is "--limitrate". Any way I could set this inside portage?
