[Snort-users] problem with install

Hmmm...do you have a /usr/local/include?  Also, you'll need a
/usr/local/include/net.  I think the Makefile doesn't create those directories
for you.

Thanks! However, when I run make install-incl, I get:

/usr/bin/install -c -m 444 -o bin -g bin ./pcap.h \
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file
`/usr/local/include/pcap.h': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-incl] Error 1

Perhaps I did this in the wrong order? Maybe something else I need to
