I posted this to the Snort user's list, but have not gotten a response
there.  Because it involves a failure in the 'configure' file, it may
qualify as a bug even though I am unable to reach the compilation step.

I apologize if this has been dealt with recently, but I searched the
list traffic back to last September, and didn't find the problem
addressed.  I've checked the documentation and looked at the innards
of the script, but had no success.  I even downloaded a fresh copy
and tried again, but still no joy.

The 'configure' script for Snort1.9.1 fails with the output:

  ./configure: test: argument expected

The full record of the 'configure' run is appended below my signature.

Here is my invocation of 'configure':

  ./configure --enable-flexresp \
              --with-libnet-libraries=/usr/lib \
              --with-libnet-includes=/usr/include \
              --with-libpcap-libraries=/usr/local/lib \
              --with-libpcap-includes=/usr/local/include

The libraries and includes are in fact in these locations except
that the libnet includes are in a subdirectory of /usr/include, as
/usr/include/libnet .  My reading of the documentation indicates
that my path above is correct and that the script will supply the
further subdirectory.  In any event, I have tried both ways and the
problem occurs with and without the complete path to the libnet
includes.

Platform particulars:

  Sun-Sparc, Solaris 2.7
  libnet 1.0.2a
  libpcap 0.7.2
  gcc 2.95.2  ( Not really relevant; never got there ... )

It is my understanding that the most recent release of libnet, 1.1.0,
won't work with Snort.

I would be most grateful for any help anyone could offer.
