 But really we/msys should ship a copy of wget in our windows package.
 (fwiw Mac ships curl not wget)

 Why should we then ship wget if osgeo4w already ships curl?

 > wget can be download as pre-built-binary from the gnuwin32-website and
 integrated in the windows-package

 Since curl is there is looks more reasonable to get that used at this
 point. Apparently the test fails:
 # check if we have wget or curl
 if [ ! -x "`which wget`" ] ; then
     if [ ! -x "`which curl`" ] ; then
         g.message -e "Either 'wget' or 'curl' is required, please install
 one first"
         exit 1
         g.message -v "Using CURL for downloading data."
     g.message -v "Using WGET for downloading data."

 Perhaps the which magic is non-functional with Msys?

 Helmut: could you take out the test in the script and just set

 to see what happens then?
