Thanks Adrian,

Currently I'm running 1.6.2 on a mac68k, uname -a gives me:

NetBSD centris 1.6.2 NetBSD 1.6.2 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Feb 10 22:45:47 UTC 

with some more from dmesg | grep 68 gives:

Apple Macintosh Centris 610  (68040)
fpu0 at mainbus0 (mc68040)

I checked last night and the latest version of snort for either 1.6.2 
that was on the package list for mac68k is still 2.0.2 (nothing there 
yet for 2.0). I built a cross compiler on my debian machine for my 
netbsd system on my centris, but only have tested it on really small 
stuff. I might try it out on a more recent version of snort (though I 
suspect that may involve library dependencies which will probably kill 
that effort).

I picked tech-security because that was the only list that had any 
relevant history when I searched for snort in the archives.
