The most 'relevant document' is ?download.file, and there is AFAIK nothing specific to MacOS X about the code (and I did write it).

You can use

Sys.setenv(http_proxy="http://un:pw@proxy.com:port")

at the start of your R session, or use

http_proxy="http://un:pw@proxy.com:port"

in your ~/.Renviron file (see 'An Introduction to R' and ?Startup).
