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

Make sure ld can find your libraries in linking phase. I had to add
/usr/local/lib (that's where libpcap and daq was installed) to
/etc/ld.so.conf and rerun ldconfig -v just to see it finds those libs.
After doing this step there's no need to specify all the lib paths in
./configure phase anymore.
