behind proxy doesn't work

Hi all,

how can I use the official mirror behind a corporate 
proxy server?

With 10.0-RC1, pkg-1.2.3 and the stock /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf I get:

# pkg update
Updating repository catalogue
Service Unavailable
pkg: Unable to find catalogs

So apparently the proxy doesn't do SRV lookups. I don't administer the 
proxy, so changing
that is not an option.
What can I do to use our official repository?
