The www command line client has the command
www -source
which can be used for mirroring. Redirect the output to a file.

The http protocol has no notion of file dates or sizes, so it's not
entirely suitable for the sorts of optimizable automatic mirroring
that packages like's "mirror" uses; if bytes
across a link are precious and you want to mirror a site behind that
link putting the files out in ftp-land is to date the only efficient
way to go.
