Hi Marty,

I've been building packages of snort for some time now and they always 
build fine for RH73, RH80 and RH90. But since the 2.0.2 release (which was 
not mentioned on freshmeat if I'm correct) did not compile on RH73 because 
of the following error:

	i386-redhat-linux-gcc-2.96 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../src -I.. -I../../.. -I../../../src  -I../../../
	src/output-plugins -I../../../src/detection-plugins -I../../../src/preprocessors  -I/usr/include/pcap -DE
	r/local/include -I/sw/include -g -O2 -g -O2 -Wall -c ../../../src/sfxhash.c
	In file included from ../../../src/sfthreshold.c:23: 
	../../../src/util.h:42: parse error before `netmasks'
	../../../src/util.h:42: warning: type defaults to `int' in declaration of `netmasks'
	../../../src/util.h:42: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
	distcc[26304] ERROR: compile on emyn.dag.wieers.com failed
	make[3]: *** [sfthreshold.o] Error 1
	make[3]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
	make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/snort-2.0.2/building/plain/src'

If you look at the changes since 2.0.1, you'll probably know what's 
missing. If you want me to test something on RH73, let me know.

You can find my packages, buildlogs and SPEC file at:


Kind regards and thanks in advance,
