Subject: [PATCH 2/4] Fixed getting of credentials from .netrc

There seemed to be a copy&paste error in http.c code, which decides
whether to get credentials from .netrc. In ftp.c "user" and "pass"
variables are char*, while in http.c, these are char**. For this reason
they should be dereferenced when determining if password and user login
is set to some value.

Also since both variables are dereferenced on lines above the changed
code, it does not really make sense to check if they are NULL.

This patch is based on fix from Bruce Jerrick <>.
