Currently Guix uses Guile’s HTTP client, which doesn’t support proxies
(the FTP client doesn’t either.)  It should support it though.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to implement, but I’m not too familiar
with all that, so I’d welcome ideas and patches.  ;-)

(In the meantime, you could use wget + ‘guix hash’, but then you’ll again
stumble upon that problem when Guix tries to download other things.)
