still no luck with it :(
I precede git command by proxychains one since git does not respect any kind
of proxy settings (nor system wide or those I set via git config http.proxy)
and it only works  in such way.
ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
Initialized empty Git repository in
git.sv.gnu.org[0:]: errno=Connection refused
fatal: unable to connect a socket (Connection refused)
Clone of 'git://git.sv.gnu.org/gnulib.git' into submodule path '.gnulib'
Failed to recurse into submodule path 'Libvirt'
Unable to initialize submodules

I suspect it still tries to use git proto somehow...

here's the output from another libvirt repo
time proxychains git clone https://github.com/marcusk/libvirt.git
ProxyChains-3.1 (http://proxychains.sf.net)
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/teo/prj/libvirt/.git/
