snort-devel: Re: [Snort-devel] snort 3 error in config

Not having "%name-devel" does create similar problems (iptables- devel, pcre-devel for example) but I don't believe flex-devel exists; at least not in CentOS 5.x.

I don't have flex-devel installed on my current CentOS box (even if it does exist) and snortsp compiles fine.

Additionally, 'flex -V' returns: "flex version 2.5.4"

Perhaps it is an "evil" flex earlier in the ${PATH} which the 'flex -V' test Russ suggests should expose.
