Ports and wget

I am behind a restrictive windows proxy setup which, on other unix
machines, I negotiate using aps (Python-based NTLM Authorization Proxy

I have set my wgetrc to use this:

http_proxy = http://atalanta.dlr.ad.delarue.com:5865
ftp_proxy = ftp://atalanta.dlr.ad.delarue.com:5865

APS is running:

[nelsonst at atalanta ~]$ netstat -an | fgrep 5865
tcp4       0      0     TIME_WAIT
tcp4       0      0  *.5865                 *.*                    LISTEN

wget works fine:

[nelsonst at atalanta ~]$ wget www.freebsd.org
--01:11:20--  http://www.freebsd.org/
           => `index.html.1'
Resolving atalanta.dlr.ad.delarue.com...

01:11:21 (34.66 KB/s) - `index.html.1' saved [19166/19166]

However I get "No route to host" messages if I try to use ports.  Does
the ports system not use wget?  Or does it have a local wgetrc which
over-rides the one I have changed?

Any ideas?
