Hi,

JJC: that worked however it looks like Snort's not
building /usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicengine/libsf_engine.so for some
reason now.

Nov  4 15:48:19 snort[17745]: FATAL ERROR: parser.c(5235) Could not stat
dynamic module path
"/usr/local/lib/snort_dynamicengine/libsf_engine.so": No such file or
directory. 


Russ: You're right, the output looks much like you anticipated:

nm /usr/local/lib/libdaq_static.a | grep daq_load_modules
000008c0 T daq_load_modules

I've attached two config.log files, one generated when I try to include
the static daq libraries, and the other when I configure without them.

Definitely appreciate the help, I haven't had any problems in the past
and this one just has me banging my head against the wall.

ross.
