You could put it on port 8080, which is fairly common.

Or, you could run the real http server on another port (eg. 81)
and run Squid as a http accelerator and proxy. I seem to recall
there were some reasons why you wouldn't want to do this
with Harvest, but we're running both (ie. accel+proxy) without
any problems.
