I assume that adding these lines to the make.conf is the same as setting them as environment variables? If I do this, I get:
# set HTTP_PROXY="http://<foo>:80" (where foo is my proxy server; the same address makes mozilla work)
# fetch http://ftp.freebsd.org/<file> (where <file> is a valid file)
fetch: http://ftp.freebsd.org/<file>: Host not found

No they don't. :) cvs and cvsup, access a cvs server for latest updates and other info, not an ftp server.
