User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
WGet cannot penetrate to the outside world through a socks firewall if 
socks5-v1.0r11 libraries are installed.

socks5-v1.0r11 changed the names of its library routines. I posted a fix-
patch to wget@sunsite.dk and to bug-wget@gnu.org

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up wget
2. type wget www.redhat.com

Actual Results:  no path to host

Expected Results:  subdirectory named www.redhat.com that contains the 
retreived information

We don't include socks support at all, do we?
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-31 16:35:11 EDT
The apatch should be submitted to the wget maintainers.

I'll add this after the next release in order to make recompile simpler for
those desiring it.
