This patch adds support to bind Wget's client socket to a user specified port.

From a usage stand-point, won't you often rather want to specify a range
rather than a single fixed port? A single fixed port number is very often in use already and being able to try a range increases the chance of working quite a lot. Plus, the use case for many is to keep the source port within a certain window.

Just my 2 cents.
