Hello Jacob,

I think we've forgotten (in fact myself <g>) something with the process
because it works for me.

Just do the following thing :

cd <source_path>/bro-1.2.1/scripts/perl
perl Makefile.PL
make
make install

I think it's the solution or something which is close (we may have to tweak
the perl's conf) but if i remember successfully, it was correct.

Best regards.
