It is a problem. I compiled 2.0PRE on AIX 4.1.5-010 with the same gcc.
Installed it, copied my squid.conf from our production machine (OSF 3.2C)
changed 2 or 3 lines (UID, GID, parent...) and up - looks all well.
But there's no reponse on port 3128. You don't need Navigator, you can
simply 'telnet machine 3128' and hang...
