I would say this is a bad idea, as squid 3.5 does not work on FreeBSD
10.1 with GENERIC kernel. Furthermore, it won't be fixed with
binary patches (ie. until 10.2 or 11.0).

I think www/squid should be recommended squid version for FreeBSD
users. It wouldn't be appropriate to recommend version which does not
work without recompiling kernel.

We discussed it not so long ago:
