I am a member of Japanese TeX Development Community.

I just found tthat the TL2017's tlpkg/installer/wget/wget.x86_64-darwin binary
does not support HTTPS protocol.

Indeed, the wget binary which I built just works with https.

$ wget https://texlive.texjp.org/current/tlnet/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb

Saving to: 'texlive.tlpdb'

But, the wget binary bundled in TL2017 does not support HTTPS protocol.

$ /opt/texlive/2017/tlpkg/installer/wget/wget.x86_64-darwin
https://texlive.texjp.org/current/tlnet/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb: HTTPS
support not compiled in.

I would like to rebuild it with https support by 12mar (TL2017
frozen), if possible.
