using the command: 'snort -U -d -c /etc/snort/snort.conf'

With the error:

database: compiled support for ( )
database: configured to use mysql
database: 'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

ERROR: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g.,
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary
'mysql' support.

If this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch.
For non-standard installations of a database, the '--with-mysql=DIR'
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install.

See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database).
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
Fatal Error, Quitting..

the mysql database is present, the contrib/create_mysql was run and the
tables are present, i ran './configure --with-mysql' 'make' 'make install'.

Are there known issues with snort-2.0.0 and mysql support??
