Exactly, this value was preseeded.  I am creating a customized install-cd.
>From it's boot-menu the "location" of the newly installed system is
choosen.  Based on that choice some basic configuration options (e.g.
proxy) are preseeded.  The problem is that the proxy setting is not
propagated to all the installed programs (like wget, firefox, subversion,
etc/pp).  Thus I want to propagate this setting with the script that is
run from by late_command.  But I can't find a clean way how to retrieve
the preseeded values.
