curl or mandrake update robot

Ultimately I'm trying to install Mandrake Update Robot. This is a program that will install software packages and security updates according to the Mandrake update servers.

One dependency is curl, which is installed, but doesn't have proxy set (I have to go through a proxy here).

I've tried configuring a .curlrc file with FTP_PROXY but this always throws up errors.

How can I get curl (or Mandrake Update Robot) to realise that there's a proxy server here?
