Possibly - or maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. On the flag
list you see having chosen a file to download, right-click the link
you want to use and copy the URL, eg:

http://wwwmaster.postgresql.org/redir?http%3A%2F%2Fftp2.uk.postgresql.org%2Fsites%2Fftp.postgresql.org%2Fsource%2Fv8.3.5%2Fpostgresql-8.3.5.tar.bz2

wget will do the right thing with such a URL, and get the file you
want, from the mirror you've chosen.
