I don't think so. I know well LD_LIBRARY_PATH and LD_RUN_PATH and 
nothing is missing to snort :
ldd snort
         libm.so.1 =>     /lib/libm.so.1
         libsocket.so.1 =>        /lib/libsocket.so.1
         libnsl.so.1 =>   /lib/libnsl.so.1
         libc.so.1 =>     /lib/libc.so.1
         libdl.so.1 =>    /lib/libdl.so.1
         libmp.so.2 =>    /lib/libmp.so.2

Libpcap is statically linked.
