short answer:
  none is better. they are compiled with different options. use the  one
  that suits most  your  requirements.  if  you  don't  know  what  your
  requirements are,  get  snort-bloat-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm.  or  better
  read the documentation carefully and compile from source.

long answer:
  each of these rpm  packages  has  its  own  specificities.  these  are
  indicated by the keywords following the "snort-" prefix in the package

  for example, snort-mysql-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm is compiled with  mysql
  support while snort-bloat-1.9.0-1snort.i386.rpm is compiled with  many
  (all ?) of the  options  that  are  supported  by  snort  (support  of
  different databases, support of flexresp, snmp etc.).  Of  course,  if
  you  want  to  customise  the  supported  options  depending  on  your
  requirements,  you  can  use  the  snort-1.9.0-1snort.src.rpm   source
