[Snort-sigs] Unified output for barnyard

Snort.conf has the usual default output lines:

 output alert_unified: filename snort.alert, limit 128
 output log_unified: filename snort.log, limit 128

Barnyard.conf is very basic:

processor dp_alert and processor dp_log are enabled.

When running a snortlog through barnyard, I get:

scdlelinux01:/home/ids/logs/scdleids01 # barnyard -o -c
/home/ids/rulesets/current/barnyard.conf -f ./snort.log.*

I've seen this error a LOT in Google, and the respons has been 'get the
latest version of snort'...well, I did, and I'm still getting the error.
