proxy=<my proxy host>
port=<my proxy host's port>

it looks like i'm getting a response from the rc5proxy, but it can't actually
grab anything from it.

<my proxy host> and <my proxy host's port> are the same as are setup in my
copy of NetScape which works fine. (well, as good as NetRape can run anyway)

so close!! yet so far away!!

now i need to get my ass in gear and get a sparc-optimized V2 client done
since the v2 client does REAL BAD (tm) on the sparc.  *sigh*  at least i
can use the brute force method.  (v2/sparc may be slow, but i've got 40+
machines to throw at it!!)
