I'm a Mac user, but I don't use the locations feature, so I can't really
comment much.

Keychain probably knows the proxy server's username and password.
We would probably want to link in the Keychain framework for this even
if the Keychain secure password storage (--enable-keychain) was disabled.

Adding the framework line to LIBS is probably correct, though suboptimal
- see the equivalent comment in configure.in for Keychain support.
We probably want a configure test rather than a hardcoded platform
check though.

Finally, shouldn't we just do this by default? If you have a system-level
proxy server set up (under Mac OS X or Windows), it would typically make
sense to use it. I can see that we might want to set something to switch
off that behaviour and go direct, but it the default should be to use it, no?
