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):

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.
