 I think that "403
 forbidden" means that this request is prohibited by 
 the configuration of the proxy, so really you
 need to contact whoever 
 administers it.
 
 Since curl/wget works to fetch
 the same URLs through that proxy, it 
 might
 be that the user-agent is disallowed, possibly you could
 test this 
 by attempting trying with
 --user-agent="Cygwin Setup"?

The proxy admins have no interest in helping with this. :)

Indeed, user-agent of Cygwin Setup is a problem:
