What problems are you having with compiling snort with --enable_flexresp?
Exactly what happens?
The snort packages you're trying to install are already compiled and are
dynamically linked to a particular version of libpcap. You may be able to
simply create a symlink from your version of libpcap to the version the
snort binary is looking for, but with a newer major version of libpcap, the
shared object may be incompatible.
If your system is using a newer or incompatible version of libpcap, you'll
have to build from source or use a statically compiled snort binary for
