[Snort-users] Starting snort against multiple interfaces?

Ok, it's my day for goofy questions I guess. I have recompiled 
snort using Sebastian Krahmer's patched libpcap, I am using a 
2.2.16 kernel and all went well with the build. If I understand
the docs I've found on this I should be able to start snort like: 
'./snort -D -i any -c snort.conf' and have it read from all nics? 

Instead I get 

Initializing Network Interface any
ioctl(SIOCGIFMTU): No such device
ERROR: Can not get MTU of an interface any!


I would like one machine to be able to monitor both the DMZ subnet 
and the internal net (I have script kiddies *working* in my dept.)
