I know I'm comming kinda late, but I'm using:

export GIT_PROXY_COMMAND=/usr/local/bin/

and is just single-line command glued from what I found
available in /bin:

#! /bin/bash

(echo "CONNECT $1:$2 HTTP/1.0"; echo; cat ) | socket 3128 | (read a; read a; cat )

Replace socket's arguments ' 3128' with your http
proxy. Fortunately our proxy does not see anything wrong with git's port.
