This is an option for the port, which you can enable by 
defining "WITH_SQUID_FOLLOW_XFF=yes". e.g.:

portupgrade -f -m "WITH_SQUID_FOLLOW_XFF=yes"
OR (if the port isn't already installed)
cd /usr/ports/www/squid && make WITH_SQUID_FOLLOW_XFF=yes install clean

And actually, squid (and many other ports with multiple compile-time options) 
supports "make config" as well, so you can make your selections from a menu.  
The menu only comes up automatically if there is no stored configuration 
(in /var/db/ports), so you may not be seeing it every time.

I don't know if there is a better way to do it, but I always check for port 
options like this by doing something like:

cd /usr/ports/www/squid
grep -F ".if" Makefile
