I would prefer a variable for wgetrc (and thus a command line option).
Having some switches in wgetrc and some within environment variables is not 
consistent and (at least for me) hardly maintainable / hard to remember.

I would leave away the configure option --enable-tcp-tfo. Instead just use the 
constants defined in <sys/socket.h>, as Hubert already does.
