Hi! I'm sorry, that's my fault.

Do you think all three should be disabled by default, or we can enable
one of them mostly used?

Do you know there is a related bug report in squid's buzilla? Do
squid's developers know about this incompatibility?
It yes it looks weird they don't check it in configure.ac script.
