Re: DAQ w/ Snort 2.9 on OpenBSD 4.7 AMD64

Unfortunately, neither this or Rmkml's suggestions helped for my situation.

# daq-modules-config --static --libs
-L/usr/local/lib -ldaq_static_modules

That seems normal.

OpenBSD ldconfig is a little different, but still showed nothing
relating to daq. Playing with the shlib_dirs and LD_LIBRARY_PATH was
futile (and I don't like that route either).

1.  Make sure you can run this from the command line:
    daq-modules-config --static --libs
If not, add it's install path to your PATH.
2.  Run this and make sure you see the daq libs:
    sudo /sbin/ldconfig -p | grep daq

If not, run ldconfig to update the its cache.  You may need to add the
install path to /etc/ld.so.conf.

    My turn.

    First, DAQ looks awesome. I just don't like being forced to compile it
    into Snort if I don't plan on using it. I'll get over that.

    Second, ERROR!

    The latest dependencies are installed on this box (within
    /usr/local/lib|includes). This is the ./configure line I'm using for

    ./configure --enable-reload --enable-ppm --enable-zlib \
               --enable-perfprofiling \
               --with-libpcap-includes=/usr/local/include \
               --with-libpcap-libraries=/usr/local/lib \
               --with-dnet-includes=/usr/local/include \
               --with-dnet-libraries=/usr/local/lib \
               --with-daq-includes=/usr/local/include \

    ...and this is the error it throws. Any suggestions?:
