In order to bind to ports less than 3128, the process must have root
privelege when it is attempting to bind. Make sure your
cache_effective_user line is set properly.

Sounds like you might be trying to run it from inittab or inetd.conf.
I use "RunCache" called from the rc.local script myself, but you
should check the format of your inittab or inetd.conf file carefully.
Note that in inetd.conf, you need two names for the process, one the
full path, and one the process name itself, as in:

amanda dgram udp wait operator /usr/local/libexec/amandad amandad

This might be the "missing process field" it's complaining about.
