Sweet...... I also have a Cygwin cross compiler toolchain that I might try
using instead......

And if you want a current version of squid you need to port squid to
MingW. It currently needs syslog and signals support & unix files paths
to operate correctly. The current "pure win32" ports all used NT only
calls which is why I updated the support for squid in cygwin/squid and
it now runs reliably non-blocking. Cygwin also got it's pthread support
upgraded recently <grin> so the aufs code runs properly under cygwin
(and that's on win9x and up). In case you're wondering, the pthread
support uses native threads, not userland threads.

Oh, did I mention squid 2.4 and up build OOTB on a base cygwin
gcc+perl+awk environment?
