squid -z
means build cache structure. But it is probably already exists.
There are two ways:
1. comment out that line in /etc/init.d/squid
2. remove old cache.
I prefer first option.

I had already tried to uncomment the line 162 but then squid proxy did not start and this fresh insatallation so remove old cache is not applicable,
