There is a Cygwin Users Guide.  It is intended to tell you how to run
Cygwin.  The Cygwin Users Guide is what is unambiguously referred to in
the squid wiki/FAQ.

The documentation for any specific package will be included in the
package itself.  As has already been mentioned, the documentation for
squid is in usr/share/doc/squid-2.6.STABLE17 and Cygwin notes are in

I don't think it is clear to anyone why you are compiling squid when
there is already a binary available for installation.  However, build
instructions are included in

Since you apparently can't build the package even given the above
instructions, I'd suggest sticking with the binary package rather than
trying to build your own.  If that doesn't work for some reason then I'd
also suggest patiently waiting until after the holidays for potential
help for the new squid mainatiner.

Oh, and also, even though I suspect that this will fall on angrily deaf
ears at this point, you might also want to read
paying particular attentions to the first four paragraphs at that page.
My reason for suggesting this is that your initial question misled a few
of us as to what you were asking for and your subsequent messages aren't
providing many more details.
