Do it like this:

MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR=     ../by-authors/id/S/SA/SAXJAZMAN/Snort

See for example how this works in textproc/p5-KinoSearch

Not all modules make it into the "official list", so don't wait for  
that to happen.  If the author wants it listed in the list, he can  
request it to be done by sending mail to the cpan masters.
