I did not know what minimum curl version would be required, so I do not test
for curl version. Also, I did not know that older curls did not have --retry.
Workaround: uninstall curl, keep only wget, that may help.

Also, the next crosstool-NG release will behave differently (basically, and
in pseudo code):
  for i in wget curl; do
    if ${i} exists; then
      try using ${i} to download
      if success; then return 0; fi
    fi
  done
  exit with error
