Have you looked at "WCCP"? Not sure if there are BSD implementations of
this, but in linux there are. Its basically a protocol that runs on both the
proxy and f/w server such that any http traffic is transparently forwarding
to the proxy server for caching/whatever before it goes through the
gateway... It used to be a cisco proprietary protocol, but I believe it may
have been RFCd
