git retrieval with git blocked

Hello Joel,

The best way, I found, to use RSB behind restrictive firewalls was to
follow these instructions:

It essentially forces all git traffic to go through a SOCKS proxy. This
works well if the firewall doesn't block SSH connections to the outside
world. However, it can be a bit slow.

Best Regards,
