Did you compile snort with mysql support?

./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql
make install

  Hi there, 
  I am running Snort 1.8.6 and using mysql as the database
  However I am getting the following error when trying to run snort:
  "mysql support is not compiled in this copy"
  mysql is installed properly, tables have been created successfully, a user (snort) with full access to the database has been created
  The following entry has been put in the snort.conf file:
  output database: alert, mysql, user=snort dbname=snort password=password host=localhost
  However the same thing works with snort-1.8.3
  Thanks for your help,
