A quick look at the ssh_config and nc manpages indicates something like 
this should work in your .ssh/config:

Host {target}
     ProxyCommand /usr/bin/nc -X 5 -x {proxyip}:{proxyport} %h %p

where {target} is the FQDN of the target host, {proxyip} is the IP of 
the SOCKS proxy, and {proxyport} is the port of the SOCKS proxy.  Change 
  "-X 5" to "-X 4" if your SOCKS proxy is version 4 instead of 5.  I 
haven't tested this, it's just extrapolation from the manpages.

Hope that helps!
