Thank you Brent. I managed to tweak the DLAGENTS variable to be able to 
download the source. I know I could up it to github or something like 
that, the GPL allows it. And the project I believe is dead, but this 
daemon always worked for me. The package already is on AUR: 

This kind of filtering on user agents is dumb, but I preferred to 
workaround that. I tried to contact the author, but didn't got a 
response (yet).
