Bug#255651: base-config: apt-config should ask for proxy if not configured

Package: base-config
Version: 2.31
Severity: normal

When using the netinst CD, the HTTP or FTP proxy is never prompted to the
user, even at low priority.

Thus, when apt-config comes for, for instance getting the security updates,
no proxy is setup and if one is needed for reaching the outside world, the
security updates fail.

I suggest asking for the proxy information if none has been inherited from
1st stage.
