Hm, sorry to hear that. I'll see whether I can integrate prominent
warnings into the port. It's a pity that I cannot fix even obvious
issues myself because I am not at all familiar with the Squid codebase
and besides you are probably not really inclined to fix any bugs I add
all by myself...

Since I received some requests for a Squid 3 port from users, I'll
guess I start tracking Squid 3 with PRE6. PRE5 plus a bunch of
changesets would be doable but I would rather wait for PRE6 if it's due
to be put out soon.
