[Snort-devel] config pidpath directive no longer valid?

I am trying to run 126.96.36.199 with the following config directive defined in my
config pidpath: /applogs/snort/run
But when starting Snort, I receive this in my syslogs:
FATAL ERROR: Unknown config directive: config pidpath: /applogs/snort/run
No errors are printed to STDOUT.
I checked the snort_manual (v2.7.0 comes with the VRT rules released on
3-6-2008, by the way) and the config directive, pidpath, <i>is</i>
explicitly defined in both the 2.7.0 and 2.8.0 Snort Manuals.
Is this a documentation error, or is 188.8.131.52 no longer recognizing "config
I can provide any system specific information if it would be useful.
As a side note:
I think it would be helpful if this fatal error was printed to
STDOUT, instead of a FATAL ERROR <i>only</i> being printed to syslog.
