There's no part of the "code" that deals with installation, just the 
makefile's "install:" section.

However, you can just as easily manually copy the files to whereever they 
need to go. Since I chroot my copy of snort, this is how I do my 
installation anyway.

I've never heard of RAMIX until today. However they make a wide variety of 
products, most of which just look like an ordinary PC but in embedded or 
blade form-factor to me. However, to snort, this is all irrelevant. A 
filesystem is a filesystem, no matter what computer hardware it runs on.

Why do you need a customized installation?
