Did you run a "make install"?

However, if you are looking for general tips or advice, I recall when I upgraded from the 2.8.5.3 build to 2.8.6 I ran make clean && make dist clean from my old 2.8.5.3 source folder.  Then I removed all of the snort_* folders from /usr/local/lib due to a version conflict of the preproc rules… I think my technique may have been a bit brutish, but it worked.
