you must need to compile snort with my sql option ..  

./configure snort****with-mysql

or use an rpm  ( if u use RH )  that contain snort with mysql support .. 
 and is must recomended  uptodate  snort to a most recent versión .. 
 2.0.0 ..

Check the list archive for more reference ..

Cheers ...
