[Snort-devel] DisplayBanner() Bug (1.8.1-Release, Solaris 2.6 on SPARC)

Perhaps I have missed this elsewhere, but ...

When running the configure script, I encounter the following problem.

(in config.h):
	#define	 PACKAGE	1
	#define	VERSION	1

Yet in DisplayBanner() in snort.c, VERSION is referenced as "%s".

Hence, when I start snort, it seg faults on displaying the banner.

I am using the 1.8.1-RELEASE distribution, GCC 2.95.2, on Sun Solaris 2.6
Generic 105181_-26, with the following configure script invocation:

./configure --prefix=/nnsrv20/disk7/NX/sun4

The bug appears to be somewhere in the configure script, but that is beyond
me. My fix is to edit config.h to correctly reflect the two strings.
