I have a similar issue with installing on RHEL 6.7 with a few changes to the output.

When trying to ./configure Snort I get this:

   ERROR!  dnet library not found, go get it from

   http://code.google.com/p/libdnet/ or use the --with-dnet-*

   options, if you have it installed in an unusual place

dnet is there:

# dnet-config --libs --cflags --version



-L/usr/local/lib -ldnet

# /usr/local/lib

lib/     lib64/   libexec/

I have tried:

# ./configure --with-dnet-libraries=/usr/local/lib/


Still get error.

I tried this but linked to the libdnet.so actually copied the libraries to the directories and did not work.

When I'm building dnet on a 64bit system I end up linking it..

cd /usr/src

tar -xzvf libdnet-1.11.tar.gz

cd libdnet-1.11

./configure && make && make install

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdnet.1 /usr/lib/

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libdnet.1 /usr/lib64/
