That was really helpful Tim, made me look into texinfo documentation...

The dot, ".", after the number didn't help, I had to place it before
instead, :-).

Also if one has @item in the immediate following line after another
@item, that's a failure, since texinfo requires @itemx instead.

And even one has @item followed by @itemx, but with other lines in
between the 2, somehow that's not understood, and @item is required...

Weird thing...

I'm attaching the patch that worked for me, and I'm pasting how the
man looks like for the particular exit status after the fix:

       Wget may return one of several error codes if it encounters problems.

       .0  No problems occurred.

       .1  Generic error code.

       .2  Parse error - for instance, when parsing command-line
options, the .wgetrc or .netrc...

       .3  File I/O error.

       .4  Network failure.

       .5  SSL verification failure.

       .6  Username/password authentication failure.

       .7  Protocol errors.

       .8  Server issued an error response.

Well, it's able to build now, :-)
