I thought I had this fixed, but apparently not.

The last release before 1.7 worked fine. Now when I start snort I get the
following error:

snort -i fxp0 -d -h -s -l /var/logs/snort-c /etc/snort.rules

--== Initializing Snort ==--
Initializing Network Interface fxp0
ioctl(SIOCGIFMTU): Invalid argument
ERROR: Can not get MTU of an interface fxp0!

fxp0 is the main interface name and is what I've used in the past. Any idea
what's changed?

System Architecture: i386 PC
OS: OpenBSD 2.6
Rules: Latest file dated 1/8/2001 on snort.org
Command line switches: (See above)  Also tried without the -i option
Error messages: (See above)
