Some questions regarding Squid on SLES10SP1/2

1. Is this the right forum? If not, please direct me. I am in the Squid
users mailing list
but these are mostly SLES specific questions

2. Where is it? It's not in the default location /USR/LOCAL/SQUID but it's
there and working.
The squid.conf is in /etc/squid which appears to be the default location.
Is there some good
reason why squid is NOT installed in the default location on SLES?

2. Is there some good reason why Squid is at 3.0 Stable and SLES and SPs
ship with 2.5 Stable?

3. I'm trying to get a perl or php redirector working. Is this possible on
2.5? Or do I need
to update to 2.7 or 3.0 stable. The url_redirector tag everyone seems to
use creates a syntax error, there is
a tag called redirect_program which looks to be similar or the same, squid
-k parse doesn't
barf on it anyway, however the result is that squid then refuses all
connections until it's removed.

Any help appreciated.
