[Snort-users] Trouble getting PHP installed to use with acid

I found the fix for this error but I forgot to post it. So here it is.

Dushyath was correct in that it was a problem with zlib, but not that it
wasn't installed it was that PHP needed to be told to use hte zlib with the
switch --with-zlib then run make and everything compiles fine and apache
goes fine and lo and behold I now have Acid running! Thanks for the pointer
BTW I am oisting this because I found this same error many times in searches
for the answer. So it seems that a lot of people have gotten this error but
the answer was nowhere to be found, until I noticed the zlib switch. So I
hope that the next person that gets this error can find this post and be off
and running.
