It actually does nothing.
It adds -DSOURCEFIRE to the cflags passed to the c compiler. This
creates a defined preprocessor symbol SOURCEFIRE, but nothing in the
source code uses that define. Having flags like this is pretty common in
development. I suspect it's an artifact of some testing flags that one
of the developers uses.
I even did a recursive grep, and found no reference the the SOURCEFIRE
directive anywhere other than configure and configure.in, proving it
really does nothing.
grep -r SOURCEFIRE *
