 host system I used previously (Ubuntu 11.10) had the wget package and 
now that I am booting from the LFS system, it does not have the wget

Just go back as when installing LFS:

1.  wget -c ...wget... and any other files you wish to install, using ubuntu, to $LFS/sources

2.  mount files as in Chapters 6.2.2 and 6.2.3 and chroot as in Chapter 6.64

3. install them

You can install most files like that.
