[Snort-users] Little install dilemma

Hello ppl,

I'm perplexed...and...in need of your assistance. I have been able to install snort on my machine at home with no probs.

I felt confident and wanted to install it at the office where I can do real monitoring on a production network where I can learn intrusion detection confidently and with the blessings of the powers that be in my department. Well things did not go well during my installation, I have looked at all possible documentation to no avail. 

It looks like something is missing from my RH 7.1 installation but I'm not sure what it is. Would you folks please look at the screen prints [enclosed] of the results when I type the commands ./configure, make and make install. To someone more savvy in "C" than I, it would probably be obvious why Iam not able to install snort on this machine. As always your input to resolving this little install dilemma will be gratefully appreciated.

       I prefer to be a dreamer 
         among the humblest,
     with visions to be realized, 
   than a lord among those without
        dreams and desires.
