While I'm not sure what the rpm compile options are, I'd recommend not using
--with-mysql on the Snort compile. You really should be using Barnyard2 and
compile --with-mysql there.

Unless your training of a remote admin includes building the Snort device,
I'd also like to recommend EasyIDS at
http://www.skynet-solutions.net/easyids/. Comes with everything compiled and
GUI manager installed - if only it used Pulled Pork, it would be close to

Happy Snorting,
