For just Squid you need /dev/null, the cache, logs, error pages,
mime.conf (I think) and the icons.

If your Squid is built with any helpers then you need

  the helpers
  the dynamic linker
  any libraries used by these helpers
  any other files required by the helpers

Squid is normally build with at least the unlinkd helper. This helper
  the dynamic linker

Also it's probably a good idea to configure syslog to have a dev/log
socket in the chroot. Not required, but often nice to have.

This should apply to 2.5 (recent ones) and later versions.
