What finally worked was to run configure with the following
which is the root of the mysql installation and not the home of mysql.h
I then had to add the path to libmysqlclient.so.10 as snort could locate
it. I did some digging around and added the path to the library to
ld.so.conf and then run ldconfig. Snort was then able to locate everything
just fine and I finally got it up and running!!!
Whew. That was way more difficult than the last time I did it about a year
Thanks to Rick, Steve and junaidi for the help.
