Ditch the RPM's and roll your own. I love the idea of RPM/Ports/PKG's, but
they all suffer from one thing: Depending on someone else to do somehthing
the way that you would.
It's fairly simple to get snort to work out of the box. Uncompress, untar, cd
<snortdir>, ./configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/lib/mysql/ && make && make
install and you're done.
