You could just make an HTML form which starts off setting the right
values. Just bring up the cachemanager in Netscape, dump the HTML
to a file, edit it to "host" to be the value of your hostname, edit
"port" to the port.

...or, do a brutal hack to cachemgr.c

    printf("SIZE=30 VALUE=\"%s\">\n", CACHEMGR_HOSTNAME);
change %s to your target proxy hostname
    printf("SIZE=30 VALUE=\"%d\">\n", CACHE_HTTP_PORT);
change %s to your target proxy port
