Another look at libcurl shows that it also handles http proxy's, so
both wget and libcurl should work.  libcurl uses the ".netrc" file,
and so can wget, so that would be the preferred filename for the
password info.

Minimal set:

    libcurl or wget installed/compiled into Xastir
    HTTP_PROXY environment variable defined
    ~/.netrc file created/filled in with appropriate values
