A third option might be to create a "snort-tracker" package that makes
it easier to build an up-to-date snort binary, complete with up-to-date
rules.  Similar to pine-tracker, but for a different purpose.

I'm not sure if that would be feasible, though.  Does snort require
significant patching to comply with our filesystem policies?

noah
