Do you have MySQL installed?  It's looking for a mysql library file and can't seem to find it.

Also, most builds start with the command --  ./configure  -- before you run any 'make' command.

That may be an indicator that you did not run ./configure first.   Try it before we go any further because mysql-devel should include the libmysqlclient.so file, but it is probably located in /usr/lib64/mysql instead of /usr/lib/mysql where the 'make' command is looking for it.

Try it with no arguments to start with. It should find everything it needs. If it doesn't it will let you know and then you can start adding arguments to help resolve the problem.

If you are planning on using mysql for logging purposes then certainly, you can do that.  But you don't need it to run snort.  And it doesn't hurt to run ./configure multiple times with different options each time. So just try it with whatever options you want, then run 'make'.  After you get it to compile to your liking finally run 'make install' to install it.
