You may need to set an extra couple of options for proxy support in kdesrc-
build but it should work otherwise (though I've not tried it in 4 years...)

See https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/kdesrc-build/conf-options-table.html#conf-git-desired-protocol

which refers to the configuration options "git-desired-protocol" and "http-
proxy".
