If that is literally (well, of course except username at userpass...) the
command you entered then note that there is an extraneous '=' character,
it should be

export http_proxy=http://username@userpass...etc

I have no idea though whether specifying a proxy this way actually works
in cygwin and is used by all tools involved in ./setup
