I had the same problem and I "think" this was the fix
./configure --with-mysql=/var/lib/mysql

See what that does for you

Hi Snort-users,

  Hello. I have just installed and attempted to run Snort.

  I have it to log to a MySQL database, so it can be inspected via

  However, it refuses to start, complaining that it is'nt compiled
  with MySQL support. I ./configured with the following:

  ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/include/mysql

  That directory does contain mysql.h and other header files. There is
  no complaint from ./configure at any point.

  Has any one got any ideas on whats wrong? I have of course got the
  Header files from MySQL.com installed! Please forgive me for being a
  reletive Linux newbie!!!!

Best regards,
 Michael (mike at ...10501...)
