Hello world,
I run Suricata on CentOS Linux 5.8 where it does a great job. I also
want to run it on OpenBSD but there it fails badly. I tried to compile
stable suricata 1.2.1 and unstable 1.3beta1 on OpenBSD 4.9, 5.0 and 5.1
with gcc 4.2.1 and the result is always a break in compiling with this

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -I../libhtp   -I/usr/local/include
-I/usr/local/include/libnet-1.1  -DRELEASE -Wextra -Wall
-fno-strict-aliasing -fno-tree-pre -Wno-unused-parameter -std=gnu99
-D__OpenBSD__ -march=native  -I/usr/local/include
-MF .deps/util-ioctl.Tpo -c -o util-ioctl.o util-ioctl.c
util-ioctl.c: In function 'GetIfaceMTU':
util-ioctl.c:74: error: storage size of 'ifr' isn't known
util-ioctl.c:83: error: invalid application of 'sizeof' to incomplete
type 'struct ifreq'
util-ioctl.c:74: warning: unused variable 'ifr'
util-ioctl.c:97: warning: control reaches end of non-void function
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/suricata-1.2.1/src (line 92 of /usr/share/mk/sys.mk).
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/suricata-1.2.1 (line 350 of Makefile).
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/suricata-1.2.1 (line 257 of Makefile).

Does anybody have any hint how to get it to compile?
Best regards
