This is funny I'm trying to compile on win2k.
Tried using nmake first no go.
Installed cygwin to try gcc and I get almost
the exact same error as PAD. Am I missing something
cause its all greek to me?
I just wanted to edit snort.c to to enable logging of
alerts to alert.ids and MySQL both.
See post from Snort siliconedefense board.

This is the error I get running nmake
F:\WINNT>nmake /f F:\snort\src\win32\WIN32-Prj\makefile CFG="snort - Win32 MSSQ
 Release" (based on "Win32 (x86) Console Application")
