This is a problem I have noted before. I went and looked at what 
object/header files snort was looking for and set the path to them and 
watched the configure script find them. When I ran Snort, it gave the 
"MySQL not compiled in" error. This was 1.8.7 on FreeBSD 4.4.

I went back to 1.8.6 and it worked peachy keen.

MySQL cetainly was installed normally, since I just used the FreeBSD package.

I never figured out what was wrong, nor do I really care at the moment. But 
I would like to know if anyone has figured this one out.
