Why? We know the current ones work and it's just a last resort anyway.
If you have wget in /opt/csw/bin, /usr/local/bin, /usr/sfw/bin or
/usr/bin it will be used before the included one.

Does the wget recipe build a static version? The above mentioned wget
binaries are not really static but they do not link to anything
outside Solaris.
