I guess that's the point for the 2 bug reports that I pointed to...
there is *no* /etc/squid.conf available to edit prior to 'sudo apt-get
install squid'.

I might be wrong (usually am) but it would appear to me that doing a
standard apt-get install shouldn't cause a core dump:

Just tried installing on my test server & got the same output.
