[Snort-users] Cannot execute binary file

I'm not passing any configure options. On the snort site it has the latest version for download. Is there a repository of older versions? I don't want to jump to the latest until I am ready to move all my sensors to the latest at once. 

Here's my install:

tar xzvf snort-
cd snort-
make install

I'm also installing prior to the snort install:
yum install -y gcc gcc-c++ flex bison zlib zlib-devel libpcap libpcap-devel pcre pcre-devel tcpdump ncsd libtool mysql mysql-devel


The script I'm using is a prior employee's script. I probably don't need to the mysql and mysql-devel
