What to do when the source is not downloadable with curl (using default settings)

for the spin port the following file needs to be downloaded:
http://spinroot.com/spin/Src/spin624.tar.gz . Unfortunately curl
receives a 406 error when trying to download it. It seems to have
something to do with the Apache mod_security module. Interestingly
passing --user-agent "Mozilla/4.0" to the curl command makes it work. I
have contacted the author but he hasn't been able to fix the web server
yet. Has anyone encountered a similar problem and knows of a solution to it?
