Hmm.  I'm not sure I understand.  Assuming you are talking about the URL wget
is asked to retrieve, in wget.c open_socket() if gethostbyname(host) fails, it
calls error_msg_and_die("cannot resolve %s\n", host).  If the URL you fed to
wget is crap, then the GET will fail.  I can't know in advance either way.

Or am I misunderstanding you?

The source to setenv is clear.  It mallocs and copies as needed 
internally, so no, you do not need a persistant string.
