Set proxy settings for emerge (gentoo)

To emerge through a proxy you need to run this command

export http_proxy="http://username:password@proxy:8080"

This will set the variable until you restart your computer

If you also want to be able to use rsync you have to also run

export RSYNC_PROXY="http://username:password@proxy:8080"
