[Bro] BRO on FreeBSD 5.2.1

I have bro installed on FreeBSD 5.2.1.  This release of FreeBSD uses 
the device file system devfs(5) to create /dev/bpfxx devices on demand. 
  The problem is when these devices are created, root owns the new 
device.  Bro running as 'bro' can't access it.

I guess a fix is to run bro as root.  Any other ideas?
