os: Mandrake 10
snort: snort-2.2.0
mysql: mysql-4.1.7

I did search the archive but none of the answers I've found helped to fix my problem.

I want to compile snort --with-mysql

my mysql 4.1.7 sources are in /root/mysql-4.1.7 and mysql is installed in

I did ./configure --with-mysql=/root/mysql-4.1.7 

I do see that configure finds mysql libraries:

checking for mysql... yes

Upon compiling I get the following error message:

/usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a(my_compress.o)(.text+0xbc): In function
: undefined reference to `compress'
/usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a(my_compress.o)(.text+0x13a): In function
: undefined reference to `uncompress'hints
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [snort] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/snort-2.2.0/src'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/snort-2.2.0/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/snort-2.2.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I added LDFLAGS = "-lz" before running configure but no luck. Still same error

I've figured maybe maybe something in the source is not right so I've installed
mysql libraries from the RPM package. Same outcome when compiling.

Any pointers and tips are appreciated.
