Having a problem installing snort on fedora 17

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've installed the latest versions of libpcap and libdnet. There is however a problem with daq. I configured snort with --wth-daq-libraries=/usr/local/lib/daq and --with-libpcap-libraries=/usr/lib flags, however snort still cannot find my daq_static library. However when I build daq, all my modules are being built correctly and I see the static libraries when I go to the directory /usr/local/lib/daq. Also when I configure daq, I also use the --wth-libpcap-libraries=/usr/lib. Another thing that I don't understand is when I look in usr/lib directory for my libpcap, I see a file that is libpcap.a (HowTos)
