I'm trying to pull down and install the
Alpine mail client with Homebrew. I'm behind a rather terrible proxy with no such thing as FTP proxying. Unfortunately the formula for Alpine requires I retrieve a package from an FTP server.
I can grab the file by other means and get it on my local system, but I need to know how to tell Homebrew to use the specified package instead of trying to download it on its own.
Is this possible?
My usual workaround of running
brew install inside of
tsocks fails for some inadequately defined reason (just fails to connect exactly as if I hadn't tried it.. yet I can
wget the file with
tsocks just fine.
