Unfortunately, wget does not come with OS X by default. Here are some notes on how to compile from source. It assumes that you have Xcode installed.

1) Download and extract

curl -O http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.16.tar.gz
tar -zxvf wget-1.16.tar.gz
cd wget-1.14

2) Install

2a) If you have super-user powers

./configure --with-ssl=openssl --prefix=/usr/local
sudo make install

2b) if not

./configure --with-ssl=openssl --prefix=$HOME/someplace/in/my/path
make install
