It will something like this:

# in preseed syntax
d-i     mirror/country          string enter information manually
d-i     mirror/http/hostname    string mir:9999
d-i     mirror/http/directory   string /debian
d-i     mirror/suite            string testing
d-i     mirror/http/proxy       string

Where 'mir' is the server that runs the apt proxy and '9999' the port it
listens.  Leave mirror/http/proxy empty
