setup.exe : proxy auto-configuration script without IE ?

I'm using cygwin on a thin desktop computer which has limited disk storage.

The network configuration of setup.exe relies on the proxy auto-configuration script of IE.

However, when a package is downloaded, it seems it is stored twice : one time into the IE disk cache and one other time into the cygwin packages disk cache.

Is there a way to make setup.exe understand the auto-configuration script without any web browser ?

Thanks for your reply.
