The syntax of httpd_accel is
httpd_accel <host> <port>

So your httpd_accel line should read
httpd_accel 80

If you have Host: based virtual servers (several virtual servers sharing
one IP address), then you need to enable Host: parsing.
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
Make sure that you set up proper ACL lists as well, to only allow
requests for your own servers. Squid blindly accepts any Host: header
sent, and uses this as the host to contact.

Setting up a accelerator for Host: based virtual hosts is a bit tricky,
and you probably won't get Apache to recognise your virtual hosts as the
Host: header contains wron port number. There is several ways around
this problem (look back a few days in the squid-users archives).
