I had few problems when I tried to compile Snort 2.1.0 on Solaris 9. Because I had hard time finding solutions one by one I thought that I will post them together so no one will have to look for them separately.

1. 
bash-2.05# make
make: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 484: Unexpected end of line seen

Makefile ends on line 489: 

SOLUTION: Use GNU make  ;] It couldn't be simpler.

2.

 In file included from util_net.c:16: 
        util_net.h:14:20: stdint.h: No such file or directory 
        make[3]: *** [util_net.o] Error 1 
        make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/subrama/sdi/snort-2.1.0/src/sfutil' 
        make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 
        make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/subrama/sdi/snort-2.1.0/src' 
        make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 
        make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/subrama/sdi/snort-2.1.0' 
        make: *** [all] Error 2

SOLUTION: Solaris doesn't have/use these file. There are few solutions that I am aware of:
In files:
src/sfutil/util_net.h
src/preprocessors/flow/flow.h
src/preprocessors/flow/portscan/flowps.h
src/event_wrapper.h
src/preprocessors/flow/flow_stat.h

change line :  #include <stdint.h> to either :  #include <sys/int_types.h> ( or just inttypes.h instead of sys/int_types.h ) or 
#ifdef HAVE_STDINT_H
#include <stdint.h>
#endif

If those two doesn't work just copy inttypes.t to stdint.h ( it worked for me, but other two should work fine )

SOLUTION: in configure script add line after INCLUDES ( which is line number 7401, as You can see below )
This line should look like this one numbered 7402



7401  INCLUDES='-I$(top_srcdir) -I$(top_srcdir)/src -I$(top_srcdir)/src/sfutil $(extra_incl) -I$(top_srcdir)/src/output-plug
ins -I$(top_srcdir)/src/detection-plugins -I$(top_srcdir)/src/preprocessors -I$(top_srcdir)/src/preprocessors/flow -I$(top_src

ct/include'
 7402  LIBS="$LIBS -lresolv"
