I am attempting to compile the 1.8.7 version of Snort, because the RPMs
complain about Dependency issues which are resolved.  Anyway the compile
proceeds to this point and fails:

Searching for mysqlclient results in the following:

[/usr/src/snort-1.8.7] locate mysqlclient


Has anyone seen this before?
