apt-proxy just uses wget for http/ftp, so if it works with wget it should
work with apt-proxy.  You need to place the http_proxy line at the bottom of
apt-proxy.conf, as shown in the example distributed with the package:

#       HTTP/FTP proxy:  apt-proxy uses wget to retreive files.  Wget uses
#       the http_proxy and ftp_proxy environment variables, which can be set
#       like this:
#export http_proxy=http://proxy:8080/
#export ftp_proxy=http://proxy:8080/
