$cd wget-mainline
$find . -name '*.[ch]' -exec fgrep -H -n 'program_name' '{}' \;
./lib/error.c:63:# define program_name program_invocation_name
./lib/error.c:95:/* The calling program should define program_name and set it

Google for that and you will find the corresponding man page. Like it's
written here 
        "These variables are automatically initialised by the glibc run-time
         startup code."

I've also opened Wget with GDB: the variable exists but seems to point to
a bad memory area...
