Log Message:
Update snort to 2.4.1
From the ChangeLog:
> 2005-09-16 - Snort 2.4.1 Released
> [*] New additions
>     * Added a -K command line option to manually select the logging mode using
>       a single switch.  The -b and -N switches will be deprecated in version
>       2.7.  Pcap logging is now the default for Snort at startup, use "-K ascii"
>       to revert to old behavior.
> [*] Improvements
>     * Win32 version now supports winpcap 3.1 and MySQL client 4.13.
>     * Added event on zero-length RPC fragments.
>     * Fixed TCP SACK processing for text based outputs that could result in a
>       DoS.
>     * General improvements to frag3 including Teardrop detection fix.
>     * Fixed a bug in the PPPoE decoder.
>     * Added patch for time stats from Bill Parker.  Enable with configure
>       --enable-timestats.
>     * Fixed IDS mode bailing at startup if logdir is specified in snort.conf
>       and /var/log/snort doesn't exist.
>     * Added decoder for IPEnc for OpenBSD.  Thanks Jason Ish for the patch
>       (long time ago) and Chris Kuethe for reraising the issue.
>     * Allow snort to use usernames (-u) and groupnames (-g) that include
>       numbers.  Thanks to Shaick for the patch.
>     * Fixed broken -T option.
>     * Change ip_proto to ip for portscan configuration.  Thanks David Bianco
>       for pointing this out.
>     * Fix for prelude initialization.  Thanks Yoann Vandoorselaere for the
>       update.
>     * For content matches, when subsequent rule options fail, start searching
>       again in correct location.
>     * Updated Win32 to handle pflog patch.
>     * Added support for new OpenBSD pflog format.  Older pflog format,
>       OpenBSD 3.3 and earlier is still supported.  Thanks Breno Leitao
>       and Christian Reis for the patch.
>     * Added statistics counter for ETH_LOOPBACK packets.  Thanks rmkml
>       for the patch.
