What do you mean? It's already created and used by port in right place -

And there is no need to move this directory. Removing a few lines from
Makefile and pkg-plist would avoid this. Do I misunderstand something?

Additional cache dirs can be created manually by user in /var/squid, I
agree. Like /var/squid/cache{1,2,3} etc whatever.
But these dirs can be created manually in /var/cache too. Like
/var/cache/squid{1,2,3}. I can't see any difference.

Explain, please.
