It wasn't clear to me if you were using some built-in URL matching code
in squid, or an external redirector, but I guess it doesn't matter.

The new Posix regex code (#include <regex.h> as opposed to #include
<regexp.h>) has an extension REG_ICASE which is a flag you add to the
cflags parameter of the regcomp call which makes the match case-
insensitive. This has to be done in the source. This tweak isn't
available on the older regexp.h versions of the expression matching
