Currently flexresp works with libnet 1.0.2a, only. It doesn't work with 
newer, or older versions.

The config file in 2.2.0-RC1 is much more explicit about this than the 
older released versions:

       echo "   ERROR!  Snort with --enable-flexresp will *only* work with"
       echo "   libnet version 1.0.2a, go get it from"
       echo "   http://www.packetfactory.net/projects/libnet/"
