Ok, here's where your problem is. You didn't _finish_ editing snort.conf. :)

Let's look at that rule:
alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HTTP_SERVERS $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"WEB-CGI
HyperSeek hsx.cgi directory traversal attempt"; uricontent:"/hsx.cgi";
content:"../../"; content:"%00"; flags:A+; reference:bugtraq,2314;
reference:cve,CAN-2001-0253; classtype:web-application-attack; sid:803;
Now, looking at your error it shows that you did not define the variable
$HTTP_PORTS, since it things that '"(msg:"WEB-CGI"' is the port.

Yep. Define $HTTP_PORTS in snort.conf. Your problems will go away, and no
need to commentout or remove any rules from the 1.8.6 ruleset.
