wget 1.11.4

I installed BIND and nslookup returned the value

# Generated by dhcpcd from eth0
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
#/etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
"/etc/resolv.conf" 4L, 149c

Should I mess with anything in the /etc/wgetrc file?

Then you have a DNS problem that you need to fix.

You should be able to do:

   nslookup anduin.linuxfromscratch.org

and get

You'll need to have BLFS/BIND Utilities installed.

Also, you might want to post the contents of /etc/resolv.conf.
