If you take a look at 
you can see that the latest supoprted version is 0.5.22.
So first, you would sync your system, and emerge libhtp to update.
You would then emerge again suricata and you're done.
Now, if you want 0.5.23, you would either request a "version bump" to the package maintainer with a bug report or, if you're impatient, you could do your own version bump locally with a customized ebuild.
In short, you would rsync /sur/portage/net-libs/libhtp to /usr/local/portage, rename the ebuild file to reflect the new version, digest it and build.
Hopefully, it should compile and install without issues.
Finally, re-emerge suricata.
