What keeps you from running a newer release? Why not use packages, or if
they are a bit outdated, help test updates? Most, if not all problems
you face may have already dealt with.

Maybe Joel will finally stop pushing people to build snort themselves,
especially if they use "howtos" like the one on the snort home page,
which includes horrible advice and as I already stated some time ago
should better be removed, at least the one about OpenBSD.

If you need a better one, here is it:

* use packages
* if they seem too old for you, why not contact maintainer and ask/help
  about updates
