Hi,
I am using snort (statically build on my HP-UX machine).
Have also tried on Linux machines.

Steps involved in building Snort statically;

[1]. For time being, move the shared version of snort dependecy
       libraries, such that compiler can only look for static depedency 
       libraries. For ex: this can be done by moving the shared libary,
       /usr/local/lib/libpcre.so to /usr/local/lib/libpcre.so_. Like this do
       for all dependecy products.There is no source code change 
       required to build snort statically. [After completing your snort
      build, dont forget to revoke the changes done to shared libraries].

[2]. If you are building snort with mysql and postgres support, then
       you will face errors as "Unsatisfied symbol". Bez, mysql and
       postgresmysql libraries looks for shared version of SSL libraries,
        by default.
       
       Then, do the following changes in configure script, to fix it,
       File: snort-2.2.3/configure
        
           before: LIBS="${LIBS} -lmysqlclient"
           after: LIBS="${LIBS} -lmysqlclient -lkrb5 -lssl -lcrypto"

       File: snort-2.2.3/configure
        
           before: LIBS="${LIBS} -lpq"
           after: LIBS="${LIBS} -lpq -lkrb5 -lssl -lcrypto".

       Also only when using mysql or postgresql, you will be in need of 
       OpenSSL.

NOTE:
I have build snort-2.3.0 statically with flexresp,mysql,postgresql support.
In this scenario, following are the list of dependecy products.
If you are going to build snort with above options, move the shared libraries
of following;
   MySQL 4.0.21       
   PostgreSQL 7.4.5  
   OpenSSL A.00.09.07 
   Libnet 1.0.2a      
   Pcre 4.4          
   Libpcap 0.8.3   
   Zlib 1.1.4         

P.S: I have not tried snort with inline support.
Hope this helps,if you are in trouble plz write to me.
