Description Brian De Wolf 2012-12-18 23:33:37 UTC
The snort rc script in the portage tree still uses the opts variable, causing noise whenever it gets used.  I fixed this in place on my systems but the real version should probably be updated.

Here is a diff of the changes I made to resolve this issue:

Thank you for your contribution to Gentoo Linux Brian. Sorry to have kept you waiting that long for an obviously correct fix.
