no... if you have local or third-party rules, they are not going to be in that 
file you downloaded... the sid-msg.map file needs to be created from the rules 
installed in your snort...

snort is snort... pulledpork is a type of rules managament package... snort 
doesn't get rules... it doesn't remove rules... all it does is use rules... 
someone or something else needs to retrieve, create, modify or remove unwanted 
rules and that's what pulledpork does...
