I've run this fine without an ip:

Jun  5 07:43:10 gateway snort: OpenPcap() device eth1 network lookup:  ^Ieth1: no IPv4 address assigned  
Jun  5 07:43:11 gateway snort: Writing PID "7913" to file "/var/run//snort_eth1.pid"

This machine has eth0 and eth1 and br0 interfaces.  Only the br0 interface has an ip.
