Bug#123782: boot-floppies: dbootstrap's wget should use passive ftp

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 3.0.17; reported 2001-12-12
Severity: important

If I'm reading net-fetch.c correctly, its call to 'wget' doesn't use passive
ftp.  This will fail for people behind many firewalls.

Shouldn't it use --passive-ftp by default?  AFAIK, turning it on should
(virtually) never cause a problem, and will be a lot better on balance.
