Check and verify your configs, yes.  Get a count of rules loaded?  Yes.  See
each and every rule?  Other than 'cat *.rules', No.

Try this:

ghosts:erek {29} snort -\?

-*> Snort! <*-
Version 1.8.6 (Build 105)
By Martin Roesch (roesch at ...1935..., www.snort.org)
USAGE: snort [-options] <filter options>

        -T         Test and report on the current Snort configuration

It's amazing where you can find the answers...  ;-)
