[Snort-users] Compiling problem in Solairs 2.6

Ok, did you recompile libpcap with the same switches you compiled snort.
They both use that lex and yacc stuff.  So, you need to provide the correct
pointers to your new lex and yacc replacements when you compile libpcap.

Before you start make sure you make distclean (or equiv) in the libpcap and
snort directories.  Then in libpcap, run the configure with switches that
show where your yacc and lex are, and then make all and possibly install
depending on how you do things.
Finally, do same for snort.

Good luck.
