I try to installing snort- on OpenBSD-4.2, before that, I try to patching it with snortsam's patch diff file (snortsam- There is nothing to problem at all when I have to compiling and installing Snort. But I got this following error when issuing "make" to installing Barnyard:

ProgVars.c: In function `ProgVars_Fprintf': ProgVars.c:672: warning: long unsigned int format, time_t arg (arg 3) gcc -g -O2 -Wall -L/usr/local/lib/mysql/ -o barnyard barnyard.o mstring.o strlcatu.o strlcpyu.o util.o spool.o sid.o debug.o classification.o CommandLineArgs.o ConfigFile.o ProgVars.o output-plugins/libop.a input-plugins/libdp.a -lz -lssl -lmysqlclient /usr/local/lib/mysql// warning: strcpy() is almost always misused, please use strlcpy() output-plugins/libop.a(op_sguil.o)(.text+0xea): In function `OpSguil_Start': /etc/barnyard/src/output-plugins/op_sguil.c:220: warning: sprintf() is often misused, please use snprintf() output-plugins/libop.a(op_sguil.o)(.text+0x4da): In function `OpSguil_Log': /etc/barnyard/src/output-plugins/op_sguil.c:366: warning: strcat() is almost always misused, please use strlcat()

I try to continue the process with hope there is nothing wrong with barnyard processing the snort's unified file. But lately I know that I was wrong...

Barnyard produce this messages
