Downloaded latest stable rules for Snort 1.8.6, when I stort snort I get the

[!] ERROR ./snortrules/shellcode.rules(14) => Bad port number:
Fatal Error, Quitting..

The only thing I've found on the web suggests:
"Probably your variable SHELLCODE_PORTS is not defined or misconfigured in
snort.conf file."
I don't have this variable in snort.conf
(When I disable shellcode rules snort starts fine, but....what the hell..it
should work with those rules as well :-)
