No, it's not. You're not defining 'config order' fully.
It should be:
config order: pass info alert log activation dynamic
Or whatever order you prefer.
The reason that it works with the -o is that command line options override
whatever is in the .conf file. -o is the same as having 'config order:
pass info alert log activation dynamic' in your .conf.
It's amazing what you can find in the snort-users list archives . :)
