INSTALL-File: add hint for proxy-server

First I want to thank the programmers of this driver, who make it possible to use my HP Laserjet 1018 with Ubuntu.
Unfortunately it took a few hours for me to install the driver according to the instructions on The reason why it didn't work was that the http_proxy-variable in my shell was not exported. So "./getweb 1018", which uses the wget command didn't work. I think it would be helpful to add a hint to the INSTALL file to export the proxy server for people who use it
export http_proxy="proxy_url:port"
