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.

Same here, unable to upgrade snort for the past few weeks...

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)

Those are not actually files containing virus. Those rules have virus detection patterns but clamscan thinks the file containing those patterns as virus.

None the less. Rules probably should not be packaged. It should be left to pulledpork to download the rules.

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".

Could you add other platforms :
arch=('i686' 'x86_64' 'armv6h' 'armv7h' 'arm')
Package is compiled and works fine under arm
