There are some scripts that can help you with this.
Try http://www.snort.org/downloads.html or
Having a script running daily or so that will notify you of
new/modified/deleted rules is very convenient, but the local rule sets
should not be updated without your attention (IMO).
Also note that the CVS checkouts of the Snort rules available from
www.snort.org may sometimes only work with snort-current.
By the way, it's probably a good tip to say that you shouldn't spend too
much time trying to grab the latest rules from www.whitehats.com
