I'm sure someone has been successful in running cvsup behind a firewall? After all, don't all these tools use ftp indrectly?

For fetch via proxy see: /usr/share/examples/etc/defaults/make.conf
Copy this file to /etc and edit the FETCH_ENV to point to your proxy
For cvsup, if you only have access via the proxy server, you can ftp the entire cvs tree (not efficient). I would ask your admin to either setup a local mirror , or add a dynamic rule for outgoing cvsup connections.
