SunOS tarc 5.9 Generic_112233-04 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10
cc: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 C 5.3 Patch 111679-10 2003/02/10
snort 2.0.0
env CFLAGS=-fast ./configure --with-snmp --with-openssl \
  --with-libpcap-includes=/usr/local/include \

A couple GNU bogosities prevent building with the Sun Forte compiler

1. __FUNCTION__ is a GNU extension (I believe the ISO C99 standard is
   __func__).  Added checks to configure.in.

2. Compound statements as expressions is a GNU extension.  This
   affects the EXTRACT_32BITS(p) macro in particular.  Added explicit
   function and prototype to decode.[ch] (yes, the irony here is that
   it appears this macro was added to work around a SIGBUS on
   optimised sparc code in the first place).  NOTE: this function
   should probably be inlined, but it is not in the patch below.

Builds and runs great with this patch on the platform above.
