I've added some information gathering functionality to the snort binary so 
trouble-shooting and upgrades will be (hopefully) easier.

With these patches applied it will look something like this:

- ---8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<--
$ ./snort -V
- -*> Snort! <*-
Version 1.8.1-RELEASE (Build 74)
By Martin Roesch (roesch at ...402..., www.snort.org)
Configure options: ./configure --with-mysql --with-openssl=no 
- --enable-flexresp
Features: mysql flexresp
- ---8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<-----8<--

What I am planning to do with this information is to create a bug-reporting 
script that takes the most common stuff we need to trouble-shoot and bug-hunt 
snort installations.

For the script I can see following information:

uname -a
snort -V
cat snort.conf | grep -v ^# | grep -v ^$
snort -T -c snort.conf (other options)

Any other things that should be included?

Tim [Timothy M. Mullen, CIO of AnchorIS.Com] claimed earlier this
morning that he had found one at WalMart the other day that was
secure out of the box, but as it turns out that was a Nintendo.
