Subject: Packages with bad URL like github


There is some packages I want add that don't have a simple way to
get it that is supported by busybox wget.
For example the github links that a lot of developers use, and some
of them do worse, they don't publish a version so the only way to get
is cloning the repo, wich isn't safe.

Don't think we need a workaround, mainly to support those https://?
Some easy solution would be change butch to optionally use another tool
to download the tarballs, tha have better support.
