The linux system wget 1.17.1 and the Windows binary 1.17.1 both grab the tudors sample page over https without requiring a certificate check. Neither set the flag in the wgetrc config file as far as I can tell (the system wgetrc file does not exist on Windows, and does not set the check_certificate = off.) However, when I compile up 1.17.1 wget on linux, the generated wget binary requires me to still pass in the --no-check-certificate flag. Stackoverflow says I can set this property to off in the wgetrc conf file. But neither the linux system wget nor windows wget binary set the flag in the wgetrc config file as far as I can tell (the system wgetrc file does not exist on Windows, and does not set the check_certificate = off.) Next, no configure flag I set during configuring wget makes a difference to the behaviour of the built binary. I got a different version of openssl (close to the version used to build the win wget binary) and it makes no differenec either. These and other problems are documented in the README. Committing the README so I don't lose track of where I am with compiling wget.
