you need to run ./configure before make. Welcome to the world of autoconf 
tarballs.. the configure script goes through and finds your C compiler, 
determines what headers you have, what standard library functions are 
present, etc etc, then sets up the makefile and an include file accordingly.

This helps snort build on a variety of different *nix systems will 
different standard libraries and compilers.
