How about removing this block?

    if (EBIT_TEST(httpState->request->flags, REQ_AUTH)) {
         * Responses to requests with authorization may be cached
         * only if a Cache-Control: pubic reply header is present.
         * RFC 2068, sec 14.9.4
        if (!EBIT_TEST(cc_mask, CC_PUBLIC))
            return 0;

Of course, that might not be enough. The reply might not be cachable
for other reasons too.
