Hmmm... I've temporary resolved this trouble in the following way:

and I've create /log directory. The error with "log directory 'log' does
not exist" disappeared. I can't understand why chroot settings
(/var/chroot/snort) aren't applied. Strangely enough that the
existents of -s options doesn't exert influence on errors message.
So, when logdir trouble disappeared I got new error message
>Oct 15 15:40:53 builder-host snort: FATAL ERROR: ERROR

I'm very sorry for troubling community with these stupid questions but I
