using the lowercase environment proxy variables works as documented:

# http_proxy=http://doesnotexist wget gnu.org
--2015-06-30 10:58:36--  http://gnu.org/
Resolving doesnotexist (doesnotexist)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address 'doesnotexist'

but using it with capitalized variables they are ignored:

# HTTP_PROXY=http://doesnotexist wget gnu.org
--2015-06-30 11:07:42--  http://gnu.org/
Resolving gnu.org (gnu.org)...
Connecting to gnu.org (gnu.org)||:80... connected.

Variables are often written capitalized and they should not be ignored by

Thank you.
