[Snort-users] Snort configuration file location

Over the years, I've installed snort using a variety of OS's and
packages. It seems everyone installs snort files to a different place.
I hate having some files in /etc/, and some in /usr/local.
I was wondering if anyone uses a prefix of something like
/usr/local/snort to keep snort it.
I'm trying it out now, and after installing snort with the prefix of
/usr/local/snort and then unpacking the VRT rules in the same
directory, I have this:
| `-- signatures
| |-- pkgconfig
| |-- snort_dynamicengine
| `-- snort_dynamicpreprocessor
| |-- doc
| `-- man
| |-- precompiled
| `-- src
I know this may sound like a trivial manner, but I'm just wondering
what some of you have found helpful. Any suggestions are appreciated.
(i need to install from source)
