wget broken after new packages in -current

I noticed upgrades ssl libraries in current and so upgraded them using installpkg. Then to my surprise, when trying to use wget:

[~]# wget
           => `coreutils-5.2.1.tar.gz'
wget: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: FIPS_mode
What the hell? is there and yes i've done ldconfig... sooo.. what the hell?

Upgrade your wget packages from current probably will fix the issue, it was probably compiled against the older packages that were there.

Is wget installed?

I have a newbie question.

I think I installed wget using an .rpm - at least, I must have because I get the "already installed" message if I try to install it from this .rpm.

Now how do I invoke the program? The command "wget" is not recognised, nothing is listed in the Runlevel Editor, can't find anything that looks like a binary on the hard drive.

What should I do next?

Never mind looks like pat repacked the ssl upgrade to fix this, from the changlog:

Wed Dec 22 19:50:57 PST 2004
a/openssl-solibs-0.9.7e-i486-2.tgz:  Rebuilt.
d/automake-1.9.4-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded to automake-1.9.4.
n/nfs-utils-1.0.7-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to nfs-utils-1.0.7.
n/openssl-0.9.7e-i486-2.tgz:  Small in patch in to
  prevent some symlinks that point to a library that doesn't exist.
  Thanks to /i. for pointing that out!
wget works great again
