Yeah, I don't think you could do that through the .info. Plus, all tools
may not rely solely on wget, so any flags could break other methods of
downloading. I think the only option would be to include an if/then in the
SlackBuild that would rename the file if it exists before it attempts to
extract it. Something like (not sure if it will keep the indent, but you
get the idea):

if ls index.html*.tgz; then
    mv index.html*.tgz $PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz
