Hmm... it doesn't seem to read it for me. And I know my http_proxy var  
is correct as curl itself works fine with just the variable set (and  
nothing in .curlrc). I've updated to the latest Macports (using  
somewhere with REAL internet that doesn't need a proxy), but nothing.  
I don't know where to proceed with this :(
