RPM does know how to access packages specified by URLs, but I
don't think either RPM or yum know anything about autoconfiguring
proxy settings though .pac files.  You'll probably have to get
the proxy address/port and either put it in the yum config file
or export it like:
export http_proxy=http://my_proxy_address:port
before doing the rpm or yum command.
