-h is used mostly (entirely?) for determining the directory
structure of packet log files.  HOME_NET is what is used
for the actual alerts.  There are scripts available for
dynamic IP snorters.  I think what it essentially does is
set HOME_NET inside the file before starting up snort.

The script should be able to be found on the website.
