I'm still having problems installing bro .9a4a on SUSE Linux. 
The "configure" and "make" (compile) steps worked (as far as I can tell). 
But I'm unable to successfully execute "sudo make install".  The following 
files are missing/unavailable: 
1. IP4.pm    // some perl module that helps "guess the network configuration" 
2. intern.bro.default 
3. mail_reports.sh 
I MAY need either need either #1 or #2, but I would like to have both.  I do 
think #3 is necessary. 
Thanks for your help. 
// below is most of the output
