Bro seems like a splendid IDS (after reading Paxson's '99 paper and
Sommers '03 paper, READMEs etc.). Now I am trying to install it .
However, when trying to compile Bro 1.0 and also (0.9a11) on my Ubuntu
Breezy Linux box I get the error message

"checking size of long long... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof
(long long), 77 "

This happens both when i run ./configure and ./configure --disable-localpcap
I am going to do some work using Bro in my Master's Thesis so I hope I
can make it work.
