Probably not in that form.  I'm guessing you actually want to select a
policy by BPF, not the other way around.  What are you trying to do
beyond the network or  VLAN bindings available now?

Sorry for the late response Russ. I need to configure one snort
instance with two different configs:

a) One configuration needs to monitor lan except host
b) Another configuration needs to monitor only traffic that comes and
go to/from host

Obviously, I can do this using two snort instances, but it will be
good to do with only one instance ...

Have you considered this setup with just one instance?

-- snort.conf is for
-- snort.conf has:

config binding: host.conf net

-- host.conf is for host only
-- use a BPF to limit traffic snort inspects to your network
