Hmmm ... Never thought of that.
Snort is linked against:

maus at ...14000...:~$ ldd /usr/local/bin/snort | grep pcap
        libpcap.so.0.8 => /usr/lib/libpcap.so.0.8 (0x0000002a9577b000)

which is from the libpcap0.8 debian package:

Description: System interface for user-level packet capture
 libpcap (Packet CAPture) provides a portable framework for low-level
 network monitoring.  Applications include network statistics collection,
 security monitoring, network debugging, etc.
 Since almost every system vendor provides a different interface for
 packet capture, and since there are several tools that require this
 functionality, we've created this system-independent API to ease in
 porting and to alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet
 capture modules in each application.
 Further information is available at <URL: http://www.tcpdump.org/>

I will try a more current (0.9.5) version.
