Hi, Russ.

I didn't include it in my big copy-and-paste, but I do add the relevant paths in before performing the ./configure. I'm pretty confident it's complete, but will take another peek just to make sure.

I'll hit the README as well. Good call.

Thanks for the input!

Have a look at Snort's README.daq.  This sounds like the issue:

Note that configure runs daq-modules-config which must be in your PATH.  If
configured the DAQ with a non-standard prefix then you may need to put that
your path like this before running configure:
