Hi,
Iam trying to cross compile snort for powerpc.
I have downloaded the sources from snort.org

I was able to compile snort-2.8.5 but when I try to compile snort-2.9.0.5 or
snort-2.9.1, I get the following error in ./configure.

checking for INADDR_NONE... configure: error: in `/home/user/snort-2.9.1':
configure: error: cannot run test program while cross compiling
See `config.log' for more details.

Can you please suggest. What is going wrong.

Below is the configure options that I have enabled.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

CFLAGS=-I/home/user/pcap/libpcap-0.9.8.20081128/  ./configure
--host=powerpc--linux-gnuspe  --enable-shared --with-pcap=linux
--without-mysql --without-postgresql --without-oracle --without-odbc
--with-libpcap-libraries=/opt/SDK/powerpc--linux-gnuspe/usr/local/lib
--with-libpcap-include=/opt/SDK/powerpc--linux-gnuspe/usr/local/include/


Below is the complete log of the ./configure.
