As the script says, you need to supply the info for the auth driver.
(You have set up the info for the prefs driver alright.)

So you need something like this:
$conf['auth']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['auth']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['auth']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['password'] = 'blah';
$conf['auth']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['table'] = 'horde_auth';

Please notice, I changed 'prefs' to 'auth'...
