Together with a colleague from work I'm porting the socks4 patch I made
for Squid 1.1.10 to Squid 2.*. The real porting has been done (that was
the easy part) but the problem is that the external ftpget program from
Squid 1.1 has become a part of the squid process itself in Squid 2.* and
then it becomes more complicated. Therefore I cannot give any estimates
on when it will be ready.

Note: people have reported that socks5 works OK with Squid. When I tried
running the squid binary with the normal socks4 library some years ago
it failed, that's why I implemented the (quite simple) socks4 protocol
in Squid itself. The external ftpget program works OK with the socks4
