I think the mman documentation is misleading. Most web
browsers try to do a DNS lookup on the hostname before
sending the request. This prevents you from adding URL
commands to the hostname. However, url commands DO work.
Try sending the command like this:

wget --referer 'profiles..' http://ftp.au.debian.org

Then look at the resulting "index.html" with your web
browser. Does that help? The documentation really should
be updated.
