Hi All,

I'm trying to re-compile Snort 2.1.2 with my program
(Preprocessor) - I've followed the usual steps as
mentioned in the README.PLUGINS.  But when I try to
make, Here's the error I get referring to some file I
never disturbed, as far as I know.  Please help me
identify what that is for and how to solve it?

I'd appreciate any help to get me going.
