Hi Michael,

    there is a special make that needs to be done to install 'pinger.'
it's documented in the 1.1.9 Release Notes:

If you want your Squid cache to measure RTT's to origin servers,
    Squid must be compiled with the USE_ICMP option. This is easily
    accomplished by uncommenting "-DUSE_ICMP=1" in src/Makefile and

    An external program called 'pinger' is responsible for sending and
    receiving ICMP packets. It must run with root privileges. After
    Squid has been compiled, the pinger program must be installed
    separately. A special Makefile target will install 'pinger' with
    appropriate permissions.

        % make install
        % su
        # make install-pinger
