Hi all,

I have a problem with makepkg.
I want to install ctemplate from AUR:

$ makepkg -s
==> Making package: ctemplate 2.2-1 (Wed May  7 15:49:15 EAT 2014)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> Retrieving sources...
   -> Downloading ctemplate-2.2.tar.gz...
curl: (7) Failed to connect to ctemplate.googlecode.com port 80:
       No route to host
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading ctemplate-2.2.tar.gz

But when browsing to http://ctemplate.googlecode.com with my browser is 
OK. The same for ping, it's OK.

$ ping ctemplate.googlecode.com
PING googlecode.l.googleusercontent.com ( 56(84) bytes of 
64 bytes from wg-in-f82.1e100.net ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=43 
time=244 ms
64 bytes from wg-in-f82.1e100.net ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=43 
time=243 ms

I do have route to "ctemplate.googlecode.com".

How special is "curl" way to connect to the network so that it doesnt 
find a route for this destination?

How can I switch to "wget" just to try?

Thank you.
