Andrew,
Thanks. That certainly gets me buy the show stopper however it does seem 
that GCC has some issue with the snmp libraries. I would also assume 
that snort will not perform SNMP trapping with the workaround?

Additionally, it seems that the issue is specific to redhat 8. I have it 
working on 7.2 fine. Let me know how you make out and again thanks for 
the support.
