If you read the install text file, it will tell you what options that
you need to use to get mySQL support.  I think it is "--with-mysql=<path
to mysql.h>", but don't hold me to it.

    However, I'm trying now to get SNORT to work with a mysql database.
    Already, I'm learning more about mysql than I ever wanted to!  I have my
    mysql database configured, but when I originally did my ./configure, make,
    and make install for SNORT, I must not have done the mysql support
    correctly.  Ever since I edited my snort.conf file to send output to my
    mysql database, whenever I run SNORT, I get this error:
    database: compiled support for ( )
    database: configured to use mysql
    database: mysql support is not compiled in this copy
     Check your configuration file to be sure you did not mis-spell "mys
     If you did not, you will need to reconfigure and recompile ensuring
     you have set the correct options to the configure script. Type
     "./configure --help" to see options for the configure script.
    Fatal Error, Quitting..
    CAN ANYONE HELP ME???  I've tried to re-do a configure, make, and make
    install, but it fails.  How can I re-compile SNORT to get the mysql output
    to work??  THANKS!!!!
