is there a way to download _EXTRA_FILES via wget while the main package uses 
_SITE_METHOD = git? For example:

FREESWITCH_VERSION = 359ff2ac70788594a321eac856c85011baed017d
FREESWITCH_SITE = git://freeswitch.org/stash/scm/fs/freeswitch.git

FREESWITCH_EXTRA_SITE = http://files.freeswitch.org

In this case _EXTRA_DOWNLOADS are not downloaded at all.

Regards, Bernd
