Thanks for your report.  It is fixed in the development version.

The changes of revision 2552 (http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/lh/wget/trunk/revision/2552) introduced the following behaviour:

% LC_ALL=C wget -V         
GNU Wget 1.13.3 built on linux-gnu.


(output is not terminated by a newline)

% echo $?

The --help output consists of a single line and returns exit code 3 as well:
% LC_ALL=C wget --help
GNU Wget 1.13.3, a non-interactive network retriever.

This breaks other applications which rely on the exit code.
The infopage designates exit code 3 as "File I/O error".
