Sorry forgot to include capture:
 Issued the configure:
./configure --with-libpcre-libraries=/usr/local/bin/pcre837/lib --with-libpcre-includes=/usr/local/bin/pcre837/include --enable-zlib --enable-gre --enable-mpls --disable-debug --enable-sourcefire  --enable-ppm  --disable-corefiles  --enable-react  --enable-flexresp3 --enable-large-pcap --enable-targetbased --enable-perfprofiling --enable-reload --disable-non-ether-decoders --enable-normalizer --enable-active-response

Abbreviated previous output:
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
config.status: executing depfiles commands
config.status: executing libtool commands
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-zlib

Configure help does not have an option for it:

[root at ...17445... snort-]# ./configure -help
`configure' configures this package to adapt to many kinds of systems.

Usage: ./configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...

To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

Defaults for the options are specified in brackets.

  -h, --help              display this help and exit
      --help=short        display options specific to this package
      --help=recursive    display the short help of all the included packages
  -V, --version           display version information and exit
  -q, --quiet, --silent   do not print `checking ...' messages
      --cache-file=FILE   cache test results in FILE [disabled]
  -C, --config-cache      alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'
  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

Installation directories:
  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX

By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

Fine tuning of the installation directories:
  --bindir=DIR            user executables [EPREFIX/bin]
  --sbindir=DIR           system admin executables [EPREFIX/sbin]

  --localstatedir=DIR     modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
  --libdir=DIR            object code libraries [EPREFIX/lib]
  --includedir=DIR        C header files [PREFIX/include]
  --oldincludedir=DIR     C header files for non-gcc [/usr/include]
  --datarootdir=DIR       read-only arch.-independent data root [PREFIX/share]
  --datadir=DIR           read-only architecture-independent data [DATAROOTDIR]

Subject: Snort no --enable-zlib option

Dear Snort Community,

I am trying to install Snort and get the following warning:
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --enable-zlib

Was zlib replaced by utility?
