I think it depends on the distribution you are using, because
the file is created by the starting script that loads snort.
In my Redhat 9 the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd creates a
file /var/run/snort_any.pid with the pid of the snort process.

The only people for me are the mad ones -- the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn
like fabulous yellow Roman candles.
