Bug#594483: BSD fetch

Package: freebsd-utils
Version: 8.1-1
Severity: wishlist

Hello there!

I've been playing with webcamd from video4bsd project to see if I can get my webcam to work on kFreeBSD, but to run the make fetch target I was missing the BSD fetch command.

BSD fetch is a lot like wget which is already present in GNU/kFreeBSD, so I wrote a small wrapper like the one in /bin/mount. I figured you could include it in freebsd-utils if it can be useful to other users.
