No, libcurl does not understand autoproxy. For that you will
probably need some additional library, e.g.

I have tried from here, downloading the "w_cc_c_10.0.026_ia32.exe"
file from intel using the curl command-line tool directly, and through
a local squid proxy, and it seems to work just fine either way, with no
special cookies, user-agent, or referer headers required, so I'm afraid
I can't help you much in debugging a problem I can't see.

Maybe someone else here has experience with PAC / WPAD / autoproxy
that can help...
