Database  'mysql' support is not compiled into this build of snort

Error: If this build of snort was obtained as a binary distribution (e.g., rpm,
or Windows), then check for alternate builds that contains the necessary 
'mysql' support.

if this build of snort was compiled by you, then re-run the
the ./configure script using the '--with-mysql' switch.
For non standard installations of a database the '--with-mysql=DIR'
syntax may need to be used to specify the base directory of the DB install.
See the database documentation for cursory details (doc/README.database).
and the URL to the most recent database plugin documentation.
