Solaris 2.7 and wget with a default configure/compile.
Unable to download (forbidden) the latest stable version of the server 1.3.14 from 

Name:    httpd.apache.org

using wget.

It would be a good idea to note the problem some place on 
the page or find a better way to deal with abuse if this 
is abuse related rather than blocking legitimate traffic.
Someone seems to have made some assumptions or be mistaken
as to the nature of what should be able to download from 
the website. 

wget http://httpd.apache.org/dist/apache_1.3.14.tar.gz
--17:28:02--  http://httpd.apache.org:80/dist/apache_1.3.14.tar.gz
           => `apache_1.3.14.tar.gz'

wget --user-agent=ANNOYED http://httpd.apache.org/dist/apache_1.3.14.tar.gz
