I'm having a problem installing Snort on my Solaris 5.7 box. I am
compiling wiht MySQL support, GCC version 2.95

gcc  -g -O2 -Wall -L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -o snort  snort.o log.o
decode.o mstring.o rules.o plugbase.o  sp_pattern_match.o
sp_tcp_flag_check.o sp_icmp_type_check.o  sp_icmp_code_check.o

-lz -lpcap -lm -lsocket -lnsl  -lmysqlclient
Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to snort
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I have a problem on a different Solaris box with a missing link to
libmysqlclient.so.10 but I can seem to fix this. Perhaps I am missing
something here... I have tried compiling with and without the mysql
directory defined also and that has made no difference.

Any ideas?
