Do you want to increase the maximum number of concurrent connections
that your Squid can handle OR do you want to use more than 128 listening
ports with your Squid? The two things are virtually unrelated but your
question mixes them up...

If it is the former, what is your current limit and why do you think you
need to increase it? What Squid version and operating system you are
using? Have you checked ulimits? Post Squid cache.log output at startup.
In most cases, this is a general "increase the number of file
descriptors available to a program" problem, but perhaps your situation
is different.

If it is the latter, why do you think you need more than 128 listening
ports and why do you think rebuilding from scratch (after "make clean")
