Yeah, I've been called a troublemaker before.  :-)  When I'm working with a
software package like snort, I like to create a build script with all the
commands and options specified.  That way, if I need to use something like
debug, it's just a matter of changing 'dis' to 'en' in the script and I'm on
my way.  And since my memory is getting short, it's nice to have it all there
in writing when I need to go back a few months later to build a new release.
