Hello Colin,

Forgive my Solaris ignorance.  Within the the linux realm this feature
also requires the presence of the libnet library.  I am doubting my
mention of it here as the possible solution because I don't see it in
your compiler complaints, but offer it any way in recognition of my own
Solaris limitations.

If in fact you do need it, it is available here:
http://www.packetfactory.net/libnet/

Avoid the Latest Version: 1.1.0 as it it not supported by snort.  The
version you would be looking for is 1.0.2a listed under the Deprecated
Tree section.

Regards,
clive
