I can confirm this too! I update my lab snort sensor every couple days 
from CVS, and have been running 1.9x for couple months now. But sometime 
last week, someone(CMG!) made changes to spp_http_decode.c
I can NOT compile snort on any of my 4.5/4.6 FreeBSD boxes. I think the 
developers are using freebsd on MAC OS X, so the header files might 
differ a bit, I'm not sure.
Here is some info about the header files in question....
<headers>
$FreeBSD: src/sys/sys/socket.h,v 1.39.2.7 2001/07/03 11:02:01 ume Exp$
$FreeBSD: src/sys/netinet/in.h,v 1.48.2.8 2002/05/02 02:36:50 silby Exp$
$FreeBSD: src/sys/netinet6/in6.h,v 1.7.2.6 2002/04/28 05:40:26 suz Exp$
$Id: spp_http_decode.c,v 1.42 2002/05/27 17:05:04 chrisgreen Exp $
</headers>
As you can see, in.h and in6.h have been updated recently but socket.h 
hasn't been touched for awhile, so I don't think its a "freebsd" issue, 
but who knows, it could be. Maybe Kris Kennaway can work with Chris 
Green and Iron out these issues. I'll help in anyway I can, I'm just not 
a snort or freebsd developer, just a user.  ;)

oh ya, Snort 1.8.7beta* works fine still, so luckly the "change" hasn't 
made it to the 1.8.x branch yet!
**WORKS**
-*> Snort! <*-
Version 1.8.7beta6 (Build 121)
-*> Snort! <*-
Version 1.9-dev (Build 134)<- Last build that I could compile on fbsd4.5
**BROKE**
Current CVS Build (not sure the build # cuz its never compiled)
