I agree with I was just trying to get one more arguments against the
-A by default :)

The real problem for me is that it makes fetch fail with some
authenticated proxies; (yes I know I can work around with changing
FETCH_ARGS in my make.conf, but I can't see any interest of keeping
the -A or at least I'm really interested in knowing why it is so
important to keep it.
