See updated tracker bug: This is caused by FEATURES=distcc-pump. Using distcc without pump feature works.

not just wget; gzip, libpipeline, sed etc. have the same issue. Its the issue with distcc or pump.
Comment 3 Shawn Landden 2019-03-27 01:44:21 UTC
Distcc main maintainer here. I cannot reproduce this with upstream tar or wget. I do not use pump, and pump is really a hack that can never be supported on arbitrary code.
