Hey David, 

I'm having the same kind of issue with mine. I'm on RH 8.0, but it should
all be the same. I have created the snort database for mysql but when I
attempt to compile snort with mysql support I receive the this error: 

database: compiled support for ( ) 
database: configured to use mysql 
database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort 

If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g., rpm, 
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary 
'mysql' support. 

If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the 
the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch. 
For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mysql=DIR' 
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install. 

See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database). 
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation. 
Fatal Error, Quitting.. 

Any suggestions...
