ACID has not dropped support for external references of signatures.  Actually 
Snort v1.8 and ACID v0.9.6b6+ even support a "cleaner" construct for signatures to 
have references to external documents via the "reference" rule option.

In an effort to reproduce your configuration, I loaded a ACID 0.9.6b6 and created a 
database (v0) using the default Snort 1.7 distribution rule set.  However, the
hyperlinks to CVE/Whitehats/etc. in each of the signatures appeared as expected.

So to re-iterate the problem you are experiencing: 
- database schema v0
- Snort 1.7
- ACID v0.9.6b6
- Check the rules file you are currently using.  Do you see text strings like
 "IDS123 - foo" or "CVE-123 - foo" in the msg rule option?  
- Is it that that a hyperlink to the appropriate site does not appear next 
to the signature? Does the text (e.g. IDS 123) appear not hyper-linked?
