Yep, got it running here. There's a little bit of postgresql specific
config, but other than that you just need to change the database type
in snort.conf (and acid, or base's config files if appropriate.)

I migrated from mySQL to postgres I'm afraid, so I don't have a
complete install procedure. I think I just googled for "postgresql
ACID snort" or something like that.

Postgres optimisations for ACID:
