I think there is a missing dependency:

ERROR! LuaJIT library not found. Go get it from (or) Try compiling without openAppId using '--disable-open-appid' configure: error: "Fatal!"

I have installed luajit ( manualy and it works.

I get an error during compilation. Is there a missing dependency?

sp_rpc_check.c:32:10: fatal error: rpc/rpc.h: No such file or directory

make[4]: *** [Makefile:487: sp_rpc_check.o] Error 1

:: failed to build snort package(s)

I found two windows trojan viruses via clamscan after installation. It is highly ironic it has happened with snort. And, I am most disappointed; I would encourage you to recheck your compressed package for any hidden "treats". Thanks.

flex and bison are both in base-devel group and core repository. To compile packages from AUR you need base-devel loaded. It does not need to be listed as a dependency unless the package relies on a specific version.

'flex' and 'bison' should be added as "makedepends".
