You can take the binary, the sid and the like files
and then change the config file to use one rules
file, in which you can merge the rules you *really*
need from the rules files. I don't think you can
reduce it more.

Maybe you can also compile snort as a static binary
so it doesn't depends on shared libraries.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
