I have been trying to get snort_inline compiled with mysql and have had
no luck so far.

The system I am working on is debian unstable box and this is what
1. When I install the libmysql-development package (which I trust
contains the /usr/include/mysql.h) and I .configure --enable-inline
--with-mysql then configure runs fine, but when I make, I get errors
with symbols not found in the mysqlclient library.
2. If I do a ./configure --enable-inline --with-mysql=/usr/include, the
configure is fine and snort-inline compiles fine, but when I try and run
it, syslog tells me there it was not compiled with the --with-mysql
3. I even downloaded the mysql sources and installed them under
/usr/local/mysql which should give me /usr/local/mysql/include/mysql.h.

Is this a known issue? Has anybody managed to get snort-inline and mysql
up and running? This is probably my own thick head so please point out
if I am doing something stupid with the compile.
