:<  - As I was getting frustrated with the whole procedure, I deleted the
snort directory, and re-un-tar'd it to start over, so I lost the config.h.
But in previous times, it activly complained about not finding the mysql.h
file, so when I didn't get that alert, I figured it had finally found it.

Reading through the documentation on mysql.com's website, I ran into some
flags that might help mysql on my BSD/OS system. So I will re-compile both
mysql and snort, and see how that helps.

Thanks very much for the advice,
