 I hope that we stick with the current model: if you run snort chrooted, every patch
 that snort uses will be within chroot directory (which means that if snort hasn't
 executed chroot('chrootdir') yet, every path will become a concatination of
 chroot directory and given path. Hope it sounds ok to everyone :) (if not
 we'd like to hear your points :))
