Re: 10.6 Snow Leopard Tips?

Mike,

It's a semi-hassle but doable.  Make sure you have Xcode installed (not sure if the SL version comes with command line 
tools, but if not you'll need those too).  Install:

daq
libdnet
pcre

Each of the above I configured with:
./configure --prefix=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh


I'd suggest installing the above with a --prefix=/opt  and keep in mind that you'll need to supply those dependency 
locations when you configure snort.  Here's what I did when I was testing:

./configure --with-daq-includes=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/include 
--with-daq-libraries=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/lib --prefix=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh --enable-sourcefire 
--with-libpcre-includes=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/include --with-libpcre-libraries=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/lib 
--with-dnet-includes=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/include --with-dnet-libraries=/Volumes/Data/Downloads/bleh/lib

And working:

uname -a && ./snort --version
Darwin Mac 12.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 12.3.0: Sun Jan  6 22:37:10 PST 2013; root:xnu-2050.22.13~1/RELEASE_X86_64

           Using PCRE version: 8.32 2012-11-30
           Using ZLIB version: 1.2.5

After that you'll need to configure it, but that's pretty much covered elsewhere on the Snort site.
Good luck!
