Make sure you don't have old preprocessors from previous installations
hanging around in your /usr/local/snort/lib/snort_dynamicpreprocessor
directory. The easiest way to do this would be to delete them all and re-do
"make install".

If all else fails, upgrade to a recent version of Snort and try again. Snort
2.8.0 is pretty old in Internet years.
