It looks like Snort's configuration file parser has a maximum line length 
of 1024 characters (defined by STD_BUF in src/snort.h). To (try to) change 
this, you'll need to modify that definition in snort.h and rebuild.

Alternatively, a workaround would be to define two or more variables, and 
duplicate the signatures that use HTTP_SERVERS.
