Strange installation results of Snort


I downloaded the latest version of Snort to load on my Xandros/Debian box. I ran configure, make, make install and some of snort is there. The snort binary is in /usr/local/bin and it even works. But some of the other stuff is not for exmaple /etc/snort.

The end of the make appears to show signs there are issues in the subdirs. Appreciate the help solving this one folks.

That just means that there is nothing to compile in those directories

But I am pretty sure there should be something to compile. There is a Makefile in each of those directories.

I found whilst compiling snort from souce under debian, it didn't create the basic config files. I had to copy these from the souce directory after it had compiled + installed. Also, just because there is a make file there doesn't mean it has to do anything - it can depend on the architecture being installed upon, and additional parameters passed such as enabling mysql or postgresql logging features, etc.
