You started with a little bit old version of the script.  I have uploaded a
new version 1.0401 which uses a '-misslist file' option to write the list
to the specified file.

The new version also allows you to exclude packages that you are not
interested in with the '-H mask' option.  This will allow your wget with
the list more selective.

Some of the other options have been changed as well, so be sure to run with
'-h' before using the script.
