I've written such shell script, I can email it to you, if you wish.
It gets the signatures from www.snort.org, the MD5-file, generates an
own MD5-sum and compares it with the one extracted from the downloaded
file. After that it installs (overwrite) the signatures, kill snort
with the signal SIGUSR1 and send you an email.
