[Snort-users] First time in NIDS mode, and...

I've seen this happen to me on occasion, and if I open up the snort.conf
file, in "vi" and then do a "write quit", thereby updating the timestamp on
the file, and rerun snort, it fires right up. I don't have an explanation
for the action and it hasn't been a burden on me too much and I just chalked
it up to something I was doing wrong so never posted any sort of a bug
report on it.

Just got snort on; works great in packet logging mode; now I'm moving on
to NIDS mode and I'm getting this:
May 16 06:49:42 sparky pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/modem
May 16 06:49:45 sparky snort: ERROR: Unable to open rules file: webcgi-lib
May 16 06:49:45 sparky kernel: device ppp0 entered promiscuous mode
May 16 06:49:45 sparky kernel: device ppp0 left promiscuous mode
command line (run from the script that sets up ipchains):
/usr/bin/snort -d -D -l /var/log/snort -h 192.168.1.0/24 -i ppp0 -c
snort.conf is the box-stock one that came with the 1.7 distro.
Why can't it load webcgi-lib? It's there, etc etc..
I'm getting no other messages about anything.
ps ax shows snort running in daemon mode with that command line, and
there is a zero-length file at /var/log/snort/portscan.log
