Bug#56887: boot-floppies: http and ftp install should query for a http-proxy
reassign 56887 base-config

Oh. If you were trying to configure apt within dselect to use a
ftp/http proxy, then the bug is apt's fault.
If you were trying to configure apt with base-config to configure a
proxy, the fault is in base-config package.
Doing proper base-config configuration makes doing it in apt
unnecessary, thus I will refile the bug to base-config.
