Upstream decides to ignore http_proxy by default, unless a config option
is set.

I shall update the dirmngr.conf skeleton to include "honor-http-proxy"
by default.

Existing users will be stuck being confused =(

Automatically, this can be adjusted with:

echo honor-http-proxy:0:1 | gpgconf --change-options dirmngr honor-http-
proxy

this is a real pity for users on http_proxy networks, I used to suffer
on such a network, and it was not nice.
