[Snort-users] At configure: No such file or directory

I'm having a surprising amount of trouble getting past ./configure

 From configure.log:

In file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1_lim.h:126,
                  from /usr/include/limits.h:30,
                  from 
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/include/l
imits.h:117,
                  from 
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/include/s
yslimits.h:7,
                  from 
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/include/l
imits.h:11,
                  from /usr/include/sys/param.h:23,
                  from configure:1367:
/usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:27: linux/limits.h: No such file or directory
In file included from configure:1367:
/usr/include/sys/param.h:24: linux/limits.h: No such file or directory
/usr/include/sys/param.h:25: linux/param.h: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 1365 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/param.h>

And this sort of problem continues for other files, but it's the same 
issue..

Specs:

snort-1.7

Linux -- 2.2.14-5.0 #1 Tue Mar 7 20:53:41 EST 2000 i586 unknown

Basically a box-stock (at least in terms of directory structure..) RHL 
6.2 install

There *are* an assortment of "limits.h" and the other missing files 
(errno.h socket.h param.h sigcontext.h ioctls.h) here and there, but 
none of them are where configure seems to expect them to be, which is to 
find them under linux/ or under asm/

Any ideas?

What am I missing?

And remember: it's spelled l-i-n-u-x, but it's pronounced "Linux"
