Without using ftp proxy, 'wget "ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz"' works fine:

huangj@tst-lintools-1 [~]
{1018} $ export ftp_proxy=

huangj@tst-lintools-1 [~]
{1019} $ wget "ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz"
--2012-05-04 15:57:52-- ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz
=> `02packages.details.txt.gz.2'

But with proxy, the same command would not work because wget uses -email is unavailable- as user instead of just anonymous:

huangj@tst-lintools-1 [~]
{1020} $ export ftp_proxy=ftp://localhost:2122

huangj@tst-lintools-1 [~]
{1021} $ wget "ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz"
--2012-05-04 16:01:16-- ftp://ftp.perl.org/pub/CPAN/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz
