[Snort-users] Error compiling

I'm trying to compile Snort onto RHEL 5 using the
"--enable-sourcefire --enable-inline --enable-targetbased
--enable-reload" options, and during make I get the following error:

inline.c: In function ‘RejectLayer2’:
inline.c:591: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
make[3]: *** [inline.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/snort-'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/snort-'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/snort-'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I realize this is probably from me forgetting to install a dependency
for the inline mode, but I cannot think of what it may be.  I have
PCRE, Libnet-1.0.2a, and Phil Wood's libpcap all installed.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.
