I have this:

	preprocessor portscan: $HOME_NET 5 5 portscan.log

and I do have portscan.log in /var/log/snort but why am I not seeing it
reported by ACID?

Are they *not* being logged?

Are you saying this:

# portscan: detect a variety of portscans
# ---------------------------------------
# portscan preprocessor by Patrick Mullen <p_mullen at ...245...>
# This preprocessor detects UDP packets or TCP SYN packets going to
# four different ports in less than three seconds. "Stealth" TCP
# packets are always detected, regardless of these settings. 

preprocessor portscan: $HOME_NET 4 3 portscan.log
# keep as from 1.8.4

In your snort.conf?

For me, this creates a text log in my snort logging directory, and an
alert goes into the database, as well...

...I'm not aware that you need to do more.
