Have you verified the 4.9-Stable GRE module supports WCCP without any
special configuration?

Maybe they have added support for WCCPv2 to the kernel, in which case some
configuration may be required to indicate if WCCPv2 or WCCPv1 is used.
Both use the same protocol number in GRE but are fundamentally different
in the frame format.

Quick check.. no it does not look like FreeBSD 4.9 has support for WCCPv2.
WCCPv1 should just work assuming there is a matching tunnel defined.

The WCCP control channel between Squid and the router seems to work fine.
It is just the decapsulation of the redirected WCCP/GRE packets which does
not work and it is this aspect of WCCP you need to focus on solving.
