If you compiled from source you probably didn't use the proper
configure flag to enable prelude support.

 ./configure --hel | grep prelude
  --enable-prelude         Enable Prelude Hybrid IDS support
                          Prefix where libprelude is installed (optional)

Once you have run configure with the proper flags,

make clean
and then make install or copy the binary where you need it and use
