The mingw installer script was able to download and install mingw 
without any issues.  I was able to use a web browser to retrieve the 
file from the location specified, but couldn't convince ftp.exe to do 
it. There must be something about ftp.exe and this environment.... I'll 
play with it some more and see if I can figure out why it doesn't work.

After manually retrieving wget and dropping it in the mythbuild 
directory, the script successfully extracted and compiled wget.  It's 
now busy downloading lots of files.

I'm unable to connect to the site - firefox times out.  I can ping it, 
however.  I'll try again later.
