[Snort-users] Snort 2.0 and SNMP - Plugin error

I' attempting to start SNMP with SNORT. The issue that I am having is
that snort will not start (nor test) and fails on the snmp plugin.

I followed the instructions for the patch provided by:

I'm using RH 8.0 with SNMP version: 

-sh-2.05b# rpm -q net-snmp

Snort version: 2.0.0.

All compiles fine and snort (with SNMP) works fine with the trap_snmp
plugin commented out.

Any information on this matter would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
