Wally, 
Thanks for the advice. It definitely helped. I can now get snort up and
running but now I have an issue with barnyard2. When running the ./configure
option for snort, did you have to include any other additional --enable
options? Reason I ask, is if I run barnyard2, I get a snort.conf errors
relating to the decode options starting at line 87. Right now I am printing
out all the README documentation and hopefully that will point me in the
right direction. 

Alex

I had the same problem yesterday.

Make sure when you ./configure you remember to use --enable-zlib
