Packaging errors on my part and the version string being inherited
from places other than the default.  The build for the binary came
from the source tree + the getrusage fix + a redefintion of the
RULE_PATH in the conf file.

Note to self:

The snort.conf and rules stuff will be appearing together in the
source tree in the future and I will not go look at CVS history to
blame whomever broke them apart.

Works great for devel, horribly for packaging.  Oh well :^).
