Hello,

I tried to use snort with libidmef. I am using Solaris 7/SPARC on Ultra 1E
machine.

I installed libxml2-2.4.3 from sunfreeware.com. I have source of
ntp-4.1.1.

I tried configure libidmef configure command like following:
# ./configure --with-libxml2-includes=/usr/local/include
--with-libxml2-libraries=/usr/local/lib --with-ntp-source=../ntp-4.1.1
