Log Message:
Update to snort
2.6.1 provides new functionality including the following:

* New pattern matcher with a significantly reduced memory footprint
* Introduction of stream5 for experimental use
* Improvements to stream4, including UDP session tracking and optimizations for the reassembly buffer
* Handling for reassembly of SMB fragmented data in DCE/RPC
* An ssh preprocessor for experimental use
* Updated Snort decoder that can decode GRE encapsulated packets
* Output plugin to allow Snort to configure Aruba access control

Snort 2.6.0:
* Tcp stream properly reassembled after failed sequence check, which may lead to possible detection evasion.
* Added configurable stream flushpoints.
* Improved rpc processing.
* Improved portscan detection.
* Improved http request processing and handling of possible evasion cases.
* Improved performance monitoring.

The Snort 2.6 release also introduces the ability to use dynamic rules and dynamic preprocessors and contains further improvements to the Snort detection engine.

Remove snort-{pgsql,mysql,prelude}. The new snort package uses
to specify build options.
