Hello all,

I first posted this to snort-users, it appears I should've posted it
to the devel list instead, so here it is.

We had someone drop by the #snort channel last night; skor.  He
reported a problem compiling Snort 2.8.1 with both IPv6 and Prelude
support enabled.  I was able to reproduce the problem.  I ran
configure as './configure --enable-ipv6 --enable-prelude' and ran
'make'.  Here is the relevant error:
