I will assume you already installed libdnet before you reached this point, but if you did not, that could be one source of the problem. Also, did you ./autogen.sh before you ran ./configure with Barnyard2?

I have installation instructions for Snort on a Ubuntu VM posted on my university website: http://polaris.umuc.edu/~sgantz/Install.html, if you want another point of reference.

I have encountered a strange problem I did not have the first time. I am following this guide: https://s3.amazonaws.com/snort-org-site/production/document_files/files/000/000/050/original/Snort_2.9.6.2_on_Ubuntu.pdf?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIXACIED2SPMSC7GA&Expires=1420749048&Signature=A8s%2FRaAbWtBBP3ehIT%2BeQnuaMLM%3D
