Hi,

Is there any documentation on what the current default enabled build
options are for snort?  I just opened up the 2.9.7.0 source and did a
'./configure' and looked in the config.log and see this (in CentOS 7):

Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info
--with-bugurl=http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla --enable-bootstrap
--enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-checking=release
--with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit
--disable-libunwind-exceptions --enable-gnu-unique-object
--enable-linker-build-id --with-linker-hash-style=gnu
--enable-languages=c,c++,objc,obj-c++,java,fortran,ada,go,lto
--enable-plugin --enable-initfini-array --disable-libgcj
--with-isl=/builddir/build/BUILD/gcc-4.8.2-20140120/obj-x86_64-redhat-linux/isl-install
--with-cloog=/builddir/build/BUILD/gcc-4.8.2-20140120/obj-x86_64-redhat-linux/cloog-install
--enable-gnu-indirect-function --with-tune=generic
--with-arch_32=x86-64 --build=x86_64-redhat-linux

I remember building it before and using --enable-sourcefire but I
don't see that being enabled as a default or even in the official
snort src.rpm.  Those being:

SNORT_BASE_CONFIG="--prefix=%{_prefix} \
                   --bindir=%{_sbindir} \
                   --sysconfdir=%{_sysconfdir}/snort \
                   --with-libpcap-includes=%{_includedir} \
                   --enable-targetbased \
                   --enable-control-socket"

I'm also curious what options most people choose to enable.  I'd think
--enable-sourcefire would be a minimum.

Thanks!

Bryan
