Make sure your snort.conf includes the preprocessor.rules file in 
preproc_rules/.  On startup you should see something like:

Initializing rule chains...
    177 preprocessor rules

I just ran an nmap at a Windows box running Snort 2.8.5 and got portscan 
events.  I can't speak for BASE, but the Snort alert.ids contained 
portscan events.

There are currently no plans to do this.  It's low priority and we don't 
really have the resources to take this on right now.
