The net/libnids package installs only a static library.
Programs that link against ilbnids need
-lnids -lglib-2.0 -lghtread-2.0
but there appears to be no mechanism for informing such programs
of that fact.
For example, the security/dsniff-nox11 package won't build,
complaining about several undefined symbols that are referenced
by libnids, and provided by libglib02.0 and libghtread-2.0.
Try to build security/dsniff-nox11
Unknown. Perhaps convert libnids to use libtool and to provide
a shared library with appropriate dependency information?
A workaround is to patch the Makefile in
security/dsniff-nox11/work/dsniff-2.3/Makefile (after "make
configure" has created the Makefile, but before proceeding to
the rest of the build), changing the LIBNIDS line to:
NIDSLIB = -L/usr/pkg/lib -lnids -lglib-2.0 -lgthread-2.0
However, this is clearly the wrong solution, since it would have
to be integrated into the configure script and repeated for
every package that uses libnids.

Now, allowed glib to be disabled.
Then, it is depend on whether libnids was built with glib option or not.

Putting follwing lines in net/libnids/buildlink3.mk may help to resolve this issue.
But it must be conditional, as said in above.
