[Snort-users] Error with LuaJIT when compiling 2.9.7.x on OS X with OpenAppID

Hi Wil,

Does pkgconfig find LuaJIT when run manually?

I posted this a few weeks ago and I don't think I saw any response.  I just tried again with on OS X 10.9, but same result.  I don't see a new version of LuaJIT.  Is anyone rolling Snort on OS X with OpenAppID configured?

I've been trying to compile 2.9.7 and on OS X 10.9, using these configure options:

./configure --prefix=/opt/snort --enable-sourcefire --enable-open-appid

I consistently fail on LuaJIT:

checking for luajit... no

   ERROR!  LuaJIT library not found. For better performance, go get it from
configure: error: "Fatal!"

My config.log shows luajit_CFLAGS and luajit_LIBS set to empty.  I've tried installing LuaJIT two ways, first by following the suggestion of downloading from luajit.org<http://luajit.org> and then through brew.  In the former option, I downloaded LuaJIT 2.0.3 tarball, ran a 'make' followed by 'sudo make install.'  That reports a successful install to /usr/local.  In the latter option, I just did a 'brew install luajit', which claims to have successfully installed luajit-2.0.3_1.

I have a luajit.pc file in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig, and if I read it correctly it maps includedir and libdir to places where libluajit and .h files exist.  My user account running the configure has rights to read all of those directories and files.

Snort configure fails I've done a fresh install from source, brew, or both at the same time.  I've also tried running the configure with sudo just for fun.

Any ideas what's wrong here?
