I'm running Solaris 8 on an Ultra 5

I have grabed libpcap and compiled and installed it under user local with
no problem.


Then I grabed the source for snort-7.1.tar 

tar xvf snort-7.1.tar
cd snort-7.1
./configure (this seems to go just fine)
make (and get the following error message)

@sylvester:/var/tmp/snort-1.7# make
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.   -DBSD_COMP -I/usr/include -DENABLE_SSL
-g -O2 -Wall -c snort.c
snort.c: In function `ErrorMessage':
snort.c:2181: `__builtin_va_alist' undeclared (first use in this function)
snort.c:2181: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
snort.c:2181: for each function it appears in.)
snort.c:2179: warning: `ap' might be used uninitialized in this function

*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `snort.o'
@sylvester:/var/tmp/snort-1.7# 


Anyone know what this means? I'm also having a problem compiling snort
under Sol 8 on an E450 (differnt problem all together.. I'm shure once I
fix this I can fix the E450)
