If you had done an apt-cache search snort before installing
you had seen, that acidlab comes with its own package.
You have to use snort-mysql with acidlab. 
In /usr/share/doc/{snort,acidlab} you will find documentation
about setting up the database.
Because snort in debian stable is a bit outdated you may consider
compiling it yourself from source, which goes straightforward.
Hope that helps.
