Yes. See?

I find that hard to believe.

I just tried this:

1 - 'man curl'

2 - search for the term 'ntlm'

3 - first search hit is a reference to the --ntlm option.

4 - read on the section for the --ntlm option that if you want NTLM for a
     proxy auth, you need to use the --proxy-ntlm option

5 - read the --proxy-ntlm description

Sorry, but how can we make this any cleared in the man page for curl?

Finally, I take note that you're on the libcurl mailing list but keep asking
about details about the curl command line tool only, which might indicate that
you're on the wrong list...
