Yes, fetch(1) in the base system can do that (check the -r and -R
flags documented in "man fetch"), as can the basic ftp(1) program (use
"reget" instead of "get").  I'm sure there are more advanced ones
similar to GetRight but these might be good enough....  Check the ftp
category of the ports collection, you might find something you like.
See (I think..)
