Hi, all.  I had a whim to build snort 1.8.3 (with libpcap 0.7.1) for an old
FreeBSD box.  Everything compiles nicely but running is a different story:

# snort -v -i fxp0
Log directory = /var/log/snort

Initializing Network Interface fxp0
ioctl(SIOC*MTU): Operation not supported
Automagic MTU discovery failed. Using default 1500ERROR: OpenPcap() device
fxp0 open: 
        fxp0: Invalid argument
Fatal Error, Quitting..

Rebuild with debugging enabled and report back?  The default tcpdump for the
box runs without a problem.
