libsfbpf is included with DAQ. Are you able to build and install DAQ without any issues?

But I should be able to build from source, at least according to one of the README files, correct?   I have started one build after installing the libpcap and other prereqs, and it started to take off and look like a build, then failed for the error below.   Where can I find the sfbpf library?

Snort is 32bit for Window, but the remainder of the support programs are 64bit. There are 32bit and 64bit installation tutorials for Windows.

I am needing to install snort on approx.. 25 32bit Rhel 5 servers.  I see there is a 64bit rpm on the website.   Is there a 32bit package available?
