I thought that it might be worth mentioning that all these configuration steps
for building a MySQL-enabled snort are described in the snort database plugin
documentation:

http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/~rdanyliw/snort/snortdb/snortdb.html

An older copy of this documentation is always mirrored at snort.org, and pointed
to by the README.database in the snort distribution.
