HTTP proxies and sbuild

After studying how mk-sbuild-lv and sbuild itself work it looks clear that mk-sbuild-lv doesn't really support http proxies. That is, if you are behind one, tough luck.

Fortunately this is easy to fix, I already submitted a bug report and a patch to launchpad. It is as simple a patch as can be, it just adds one line to the mk-sbuild-lv script which exports the http_proxy setting to the chroot environment.
