No. AFAIK the support for this must be in the squid binary - (squid 
folks correct me if I'm wrong!). I did _not_ find an rpm for squid with 
this support.
Even though parts of it seems to work with some stuff from the suse 
binary rpm of squid-beta, i cannot recommend this. it's to dirty a 
The clean solution is:
configure, make, install squid and then do some symlinks, some editing 
in startscripts and then it works.

Yes. the wbinfo_group.pl worked. the wb_group stuff never worked here.
wbinfo_group is a simple (even i can grasp it) perl skript, that just 
does several wbinfo - xxx checks and combines them in order to get info 
about group memberships. Have a look at it - it's really simple.
