Going through the rpmlint errors

E: snort configure-without-libdir-spec
   if [ "$1" = "mysql" ]; then
	./configure $SNORT_BASE_CONFIG \
	--with-mysql \
	--without-postgresql \
	--without-oracle \
	%{?EnableFlexresp} %{?EnableFlexresp2}
   fi

Not sure what the best fix for this is.. my take on the logic was a
complete rewrite which usually means I dont understand the problem :).
