Since Fink relies on wget, is Fink effectively broken by 10.1? That would be fairly annoying, even though I suppose fixing it would be painless. Perhaps Fink will release a new version that either installs wget or uses another program.

fink installs it's own wget
and is working still since the upgrade.

anyway, the new devtools seem to have some issues and have not been able to compile much with them until I can figure out the patches correctly.

In the meantime, fink staff is way ahead of the game and should have most of the answers by reading the info files in there.

Fink uses curl

and by the way it is updated to 0.3.0
I will however install wget for compatibility
and curl displays download progression nicely

According to the fink installer, it uses curl or wget, depending on what's available.
