[Snort-devel] version numbers needed for preprocessors / libsf_engine?

Hi Markus--

Are you talking about the version number on the .so itself,
or the version/build numbers that are internal to the code?

The internal version numbers were intended to help in handling
compatibility problems, but it is best to replace both the
shared libs and Snort together.

Generally, when I build/install the .so's, the plain .so actually
gets symlink'd to a similarly named file that has a version.
