Please use the latest version, unless you have a specific reason not to do
so. You can get the lastest version from:

You have to set the environment variable $BROPATH pointing to your policy
directory. E.g.
	export BROPATH=/usr/local/bro/policy:/my/other/policy/directories/

Bro can then find bro.init which is located in the policy directory.
