I think it would be a lot easier if you'd just install Tor (http://tor.eff.org/). If you use the security/tor-devel port, you can run it on your company's gateway and build an intercepting proxy with PF (or natd but I haven't tried that). This way you wouldn't have to touch the client systems at all. Currently the "great firewall of Wikipedia" prevents Tor users from contributing, but if you're only interested in reading, this shouldn't be a problem. Note that Tor doesn't hide the fact that you are using it. My understanding is that Tor usage is currently still legal in China (or at least not prosecuted) and quite popular there, but of course you should confirm that before you start using it on an IP address that can be traced back to you.
