I wrote a "test" stanza for my snort rc file.  then I run "service  
snort test" or "/etc/rc.d/init.d/snort test" do perform whatever  
pile-of-tests I have applied to the rc script.

I use some variables passed in through the " -S " option, so snort -T  
never really worked all that well for me.  I will be adding "  
verify-rule " to my list of tests.
