Disclaimers such as this are frowned upon when sent in messages to
public fora such as this one. Some people have been known to refuse to
respond to such messages.

It is also much preferred to send short logs as text, and not zip
archives, as it generates extra steps for people to view them. Please
just post the log inline, or as an inline attachment, next time.

Judging from the log, it looks to me like you're giving
"http_proxy=x.x.x.x.x" as an actual argument to wget, rather than
specifying it in the environment, or as an rc command (perhaps via the
- -e switch). As such, wget treats it as an URL, and of course no such
network name exists.

It looks like it sent the request (for this silly name) to a proxy
anyway, so specifying it directly appears to have been unnecessary
anyway, even if you had done so correctly.
