I tried several methods, including cutting and pasting with the mouse, ftp, and finally that "wget" since it could easily be put in the email posting.

Possibly, though it's a newly created system.  I want to go from OS distribution to configured RTEMS build system with controlled versions of packages in a fully automated manner using a "kickstart" file to supply to a client for their RTEMS development.

It's actually RHEL6.1.  In spite of the error it downloaded the RTEMS tools fine using yum.  I'm rebuilding my BSPs now.  I'll redo this from scratch later and see if I can note any problems.
