Hi Ken,

Suricata is currently using an older version of LibHTP, but (as far as
I know) will be upgrading to the latest (0.5.x) in the next major
release. In LibHTP 0.5.x there is a new infrastructure for regression
testing, and main.c is no longer compiled. (The file is still in the
project because there might be a test or two left that need to be

If you wish you can take the new LibHTP for a spin:
https://github.com/ironbee/libhtp but, generally, there are currently
no compile warnings on my development platforms. (Note: you cannot
compile current Suricata with newer LibHTP.)
