[vlc-devel] [PATCH] support libproxy for http access

I think libproxy could be a nice addition to VLC.
IT offers to use the system proxy settings you can do in gnome, kde or
the environment variables (http_proxy).

so far, VLC only supported the envvar.

The patch works for me, there are just some things I would need help
from you.

- The configure script should detect wether libproxy is there or if
--enable-libproxy / --disable-libproxy was specified.

- The inclusion of proxy.h has to depend on the result of that check.

- For my tests I 'hacked' up the Makefile manually to link
access_http_plugin against libproxy. This should be automated and of
course also depending on the configure parameter.

Unfortunately I have no clue how to do that...so if somebody of you
could help me there or provide the needed patch?

Thank you very much,
