[Snort-users] New rule file format and lost path info

I start snort with the following Commandline:

#/usr/local/snort/snort -D -dev -c /usr/local/snort/snort.conf

if I am not in the /usr/local/snort dir, snort can't find the included rule
files.  If the full path to the rule files is not included in the conf file,
snort looks for the includes relative to the dir you are currently in rather
than relative to the specified location of snort.conf.  This of course also
screws up any hope of HUPing it.
