How did you obtain your Squid binary? If you built it from sources, then
the build picked up a different OpenSSL version than you expected. If
you downloaded a binary Squid package, then that Squid binary was built
against a different OpenSSL version than you have on your box. In either
case, your Squid may work just fine, but YMMV. IMHO, it is best when the
build uses an OpenSSL version that matches the installed one.

Please note that you may have multiple OpenSSL versions installed.
