Your other post was reported for being a duplicate and for re-opening/hijacking an old thread. The error very clearly tells you that you are missing the libdnet library. Did you try to look up how you would install this? Try "sudo apt-get install libdnet"?
And you don't say how you installed snort, since the instructions for the pre-built package on Ubuntu are different than for installing things via source.
