I rebuilt cabal-install recently (against HTTP-4000.0.6). After doing
so, it successfully uses $http_proxy. Previously it was TRYING to use
the proxy, but failing because it didn't include a Host field.
$ cabal update -v3
Downloading the latest package list from hackage.haskell.org
GET http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/00-index.tar.gz HTTP/1.1
proxy uri host: localhost, port: :8080
Creating new connection to localhost:8080
Maybe HTTP only supports $http_proxy on GNU/Linux?
Maybe you need to use a newer HTTP?
