Follow-up Comment #5, bug #27437 (project make):

As Philip suggested on the mailing list (which, as I already mentioned, is
the RIGHT place to ask these questions and NOT in the bug tracker), you should
read the README and/or INSTALL files that come with your software package. 
Apparently the snort developers leave this in the "doc" subdirectory instead
of the root directory, like almost all other software packages.

As Martin says, neither makefile.am  nor makefile.in are real makefiles.

The short answer as to what you should do next, besides "Read the Fine
README/INSTALL files", is "run ./configure".

The other short answer is, "this is in no way a bug in, or problem with,
make".  You should ask on the snort mailing lists for help with building
snort, not on the GNU make mailing lists (and definitely not on the bug
