--- Comment #1 from Bradley M. Kuhn <bkuhn at ebb.org>  ---
In 2008, Matthias Kaehlcke <matthias at kaehlcke.net> posted a patch to the
mailing list for this:
http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2008-August/066797.html

It does not appear his patch was ever applied; there was some discussion about
bloat and then Denys suggested:
> To be honest, whole dance with alarm() in wget needs rewriting,
> poll(..., seconds*1000) + read() would allow signal-less handling
> of progressmeter and/or timeout.

So doing that is probably the right next step here.
