Yeah..... It would defiantly be worth having a few other OS's around
here for testing. All I ever test build on is Linux. Can someone send
around a copy of the Solaris 7/ Tru64 build errors?

Some of that is my fault.. Oops. I am always forgetting to change the
EXTRA_DIST variable when updating the /contrib's. I will see what I
can clean up there tomorrow.

No doubt there are some more. BTW... If anyone on snort-devel knows of
any other bugs, typos, or files in /contrib that need to be fixed or
updated before 1.7 goes out please bring them up soon.
Sorry about my slow responses. I have been on the road, and will be out
at SANS next week so my usefulness will continue to be be somewhat
limited until that is over.
