daq_static error on snort build
From: tgiles () echoforest org

Hi, all.

Any particular trick to handle the "daq_static library not found" error message when compiling 2.90 from source?

Compiled libpcap-1.0.0 without issue. daq-0.2 is fine as well. When I go to configure snort, I end up with:

ERROR!  daq_static library not found, go get it from...

I spent the past hour or two rooting around on the commandline, trying different options without success. All other new 
requirements for my CentOS 5 32 bit testing system (libdnet, bison, flex, etc) are installed without a problem.

I re-downloaded all packages, wiped the target directory on several occasions, etc. and still can't get snort's build 
to see any daq_static files.

Any thoughts or pointers

Thanks for any input you may have


Just in case it will help, here's the exact bits I'm running- pretty much all in order. 

## libpcap-1.0.0
./configure --prefix=/opt/snort ; make && make install

## DAQ
./configure --prefix=/opt/snort --with-libpcap-includes=/opt/snort/include --with-libpcap-libraries=/opt/snort/lib 

## snort 2.9.0
./configure --prefix=/opt/snort --oldincludedir=/opt/usr/include --enable-dynamicplugin --enable-reload 
--enable-reload-error-restart --enable-zlib --enable-perfprofiling --with-daq-includes=/opt/snort/include
