The problem lays in the port of privoxy
the privoxy port by default runs as root, when you run the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/privoxy.sh script the daemon binds to the privoxy port and listens as uid=0!
Seriously, it's a non priviledged port there's no reason to have this daemon listenning to a network socket as root.
run the rc.d script, look at what uid is running the daemon.
Small fix to the privoxy.sh script to allow it to run as a privoxy/squid/cache user of some type. Maybe fix some of the defaults to let it write to it's log file.
