this is answered in the mailing list archives:
which explains how to either change wget's source code or to
remove wget from the compilation process.

If you want the z39.50 client support, you need to add "--enable-z3950"
to the configure command:

$ ./configure --enable-z3950

You can then configure which z3950 servers to talk to by editting
the file $GSDLHOME/etc/packages/z3950.cfg, which has some sample
servers commented out.

Hope this helps
