As I said earlier, you need to check the library symbol names match the
ones you are telling the compiler to use instead of bind().

The error you had earlier was that the SOCKSbind name could not be found
in any library. Squid code does not use that function name anywhere, so
that error could only happen if the export *was* working - but the
library not being found.

AFAIK you should not combine cross-compilation (--build/--host/--target)
with -march=native (compile optimizations for local machines CPU
specific abilities).

Do you have libsocks development version installed in the OS default
