Snort is breaking when trying to include HTTPS logging
functionality using OpenSSL.  The issue should be independant of

The quick fix is to manually edit the Makefile and remove
the "-DENABLE_SSL" string from "CPPFLAGS".  However, more information
required for the real fix:

- - What version of Snort are you using? (am I correct that it is 1.7)
- - What version of OpenSSL?
- - What directory are the OpenSSL headers in? library?
