Due to the same type of thing ...  failures loading various preprocessor libs etc..

that is what I tried too...  now I have the error described (poorly) below.  Currently I have no snort_* directories in /usr/local/lib and am getting the following error: (which makes sense)

ERROR: parser.c(5161) Could not stat dynamic module path "/usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicpreprocessor/": No such file or directory.

What I don't know how to do is force a rebuild of these directories on the install.

Definitely specific errors would help.  However, if you are looking for general tips or advice, I recall when I upgraded from the build to 2.8.6 I ran make clean && make dist clean from my old source folder.  Then I removed all of the snort_* folders from /usr/local/lib due to a version conflict of the preproc rules... I think my technique may have been a bit brutish, but it worked.

The specific error(s) that you are receiving would be useful here...

It appears I have all kinds of problems with preprocessors.

I am installing from  snort-2.8.6.tar.gz

I cannot get it to rebuild the dynamic_preprocessor libraries to /usr/local/lib....

I expect if I can get this to work I will have what I need.  Anyone have suggestions?
