Which indicates a code level issue rather than environmental or config.
I also insured packet forwarding is on. I'll dig around some BSD
resources and see if I can find additional info. Of course if anyone has
a working WCCP config with FreeBSD 4.9-S please speak up.

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
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
WCCPv1 should just work assuming there is a matching tunnel defined.

The WCCP control channel between Squid and the router seems to work
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
