The snort.org ones are built by Chris Reid and he also maintains them
at his site.  They are to be copied from his site -> snort.org.
Somewhere, probably my notification, failed and we haven't gotten that
done yet.

We ran into a couple packaging snafu's on my end with the release that
postponed things and a 2.0.2 release will correct them.

Only way I'll know is if you test it and get back to me on that.  I
don't know anything about libnetNT.
