You may find you can specify squid to an ftp program's cache option as..

Note the http:, which if the ftp program is smart, will realise this is a
http style ftp cache, and call it correctly using the http protocol
instead of the ftp protocol.

The problem may be the support of the software on the macintosh.

Only other thing I could think of (and it's silly, but 'should work', is
someone writing a small program to recieve proxy ftp requests and pass
them to squid as http style requests. Unfortunately no one has written
such a program.
