opkg using wget...

I understand that wget is not used any more in opkg ; libcurl is used in
its place now.
Although I fully appreciate the superiority of libcurl and the fact that
it is used using library calls instead of system(), there are some cases,
in embedded systems with very limited resources (flash, in particular),
that the overhead of libcurl may not be acceptable (whereas busybox wget
size is insignificant).
For this reason, I have prepared a patch against revision 4480 that
disables curl and enables wget conditionally (using the --disable-curl
option in configure) in compile time.
Please review and comment...
