There's a couple of fairly recent discussions in the forums about snort on Sparc:

That was a couple of months ago, though, so things may have changed.

(I've just started using eix.) I also noticed in packages.gentoo.org that it isn't even on the map for sparc. So, am I stuck with downloading the sources, and managing it outside of portage? I'd really rather not do that. Is it really that unstable? Or is there just no one to build the ebuild for sparc? If it's the latter, I might be able to help, but I'd like some insight before I go diving into a project like that.
