All right, since there are so many people wanting this change I think it makes sense to switch to
such behaviour:

1. if file isn't given with full path in snort rules file, the path of snort.conf ('./' if no path was given in command line)
will be used.
2. if file is given with the full path name (i.g. starts with '/' character), this full path will be used.

hope it helps. (I am commiting cvs fixes shortly).
