This is just to satisfy my curiosity: 

somewhere between 1.6 and 1.6.3 snort's default location for the
snort.alert file went from /var/log to /var/log/snort. i've been logging
it to syslog so didn't realize this right away. you can change the default
alert directory by -l, but what about this specific file? I would like it
OUTSIDE of the /var/log/snort directory. 

or am i seeing something that shouldn't be and i have something screwed
up? perhaps a compile option i forgot about?
