Argh! Certainly not here, I just had to build a new build environment to get it all running; the irony is not lost on 
me, nor is the frustration.  So, now that I know it can be done on Debian, I am turning back to my old build 
environment wondering why/where it went wrong.  I had libdnet-1.11, libpcap-1.1.1 and went to town on daq-0.2 so I 
could get snort-2.9.0 up and running in my test environment.  So running ./configure for daq, I get the following 
error (last 5 lines of output below):

      checking whether the f77 linker (/usr/bin/ld) supports shared libraries... yes
      checking dynamic linker characteristics... GNU/Linux ld.so
      (cached) (cached) checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
      ./configure: line 19179: syntax error near unexpected token `AC_SF_COMPILER_SETUP'
      ./configure: line 19179: `AC_SF_COMPILER_SETUP()'

Google turns up a bunch of cricket chirps and so I put it to the Sourcefire guys... any clues?

It looks like you reran autoconf on a system where it doesn't support 
including a directory for m4 files (it should have spit out some nasty 
warnings at you).  The AC_SF_COMPILER_SETUP autoconf macro is 
precompiled into the configure script distributed with the DAQ tarball 
and defined in m4/sf.m4 for when you need to recompile configure from 
configure.ac.  In short, if you run the configure that comes with the 
DAQ tarball you should not encounter this error.
