Greetings everyone, and let me apologize in advance if this one has been
answered already.  I have been unable to find it if it has!
I am trying to build a new firewall, and I plan on it including Snort
and Demarc.  Now I have been running snort for a while and it has been
working well. Now I need to compile it with mysql support, and I am
having some issues.
This is on Debian (Testing) with a custom compiled 2.4.13 kernel.  I
have FreeS/wan compiled into the kernel (just not configured now).  I
installed the latest binary distribution of mysql from mysql.com which
is 3.23.43.
My configure command (from the demark docs) is pretty simple.
./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --prefix=/usr/local/snort/
It seems to go fine, including finding mysql.
The error is on make

Now interestingly enough, I just noticed this when I was looking at the
output of my configure.
checking for compress in -lz... no
I just don't know if it means anything.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Everyone
