 Actually, I was rename the snort's directory from
 'snort-2.8.0' becomes 'snort'. 
 The so_rules being located at /etc/snort/so_rules when
 # ls
 _meta.h                                 p2p.c
 _meta.o                                 p2p.o
 bad-traffic_pgm-nak-overflow.c          p2p_winny.c
 category-build.pl                       pcre.h
 dos_igmpv3.c                            pcreposix.h

 I beg a pardon, my bad.
 Its Snort-2.8.0 with pretty old version of 
 snortrules-snapshot-CURRENT. I am using this 
 for testing purpose only and there is no 
 bug from implementation at another machines.
 Thanks in advance
