snort fails to build

Hello All,

I was using snort from macports on Mavericks, however after migrating to Yosemite and updating/compiling macports, snort no longer installs.

Regrettably, it appears there is no maintainer for snort (port info --maintainers snort -> maintainers: nomaintainer at <mailto:nomaintainer at>.)

The failure seems to occur when it is building the plugins, 
:info:build make[3]: Entering directory `/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_net_snort/snort/work/snort-'
:info:build In file included from spo_alert_syslog.c:70:
:info:build ../../src/strlcatu.h:24:8: error: expected parameter declarator
:info:build size_t strlcat(char *, const char *, size_t);
...more errors...

Does anyone know of a workaround or if there is a new maintainer of this port?
