If you want Snort to use the mysql database output plugin, then you will 
need the mysql libraries and client when you compile Snort on the sensor. 
What you are doing here appears to be the mysql setup. But if you are just 
trying to get snort compiled on a box, you do not need to compile the 
database, you just need the mysql files.

(Also note the the very first snort installation guide for redhat9, mysql, 
apache, php, acid refers to only using a single computer for everything).
