It's a win32 only bug. The normal config.h generated by a standard unix 
./configure doesn't have this issue. Apparently when the release was made, 
nobody updated config.h for the win32 guys, which needs to be done 
separately since win32 can't use the standard .configure script. Looks like 
a minor oversight in the release process which is a cosmetic issue.

  It certainly doesn't impact the code itself, and the build number is 
still consistent with the one reported by the UNIX systems so it's at least 
detectable that it's the same release.

bash$ cd snort-2.0.0
bash$ ./configure
bash$ grep " VERSION " config.h

#define VERSION "2.0.0"
#define VERSION "2.0.0"

If I then go into the win32 directory:

bash$ cd /src/win32/WIN32-Includes

bash$ grep " VERSION " config.h
#define VERSION 
"2.0.0rc5"VERSION_ENABLE_ODBC""VERSION_ENABLE_MYSQL""VERSION_ENABLE_
MSSQL""VERSION_ENABLE_RESPONSE"-WIN32"VERSION_DEBUG
