No, I did not.  However, the documentation says you can run bro_config 
instead.  I *did* do that.


"The Bro-Lite configuration script can be used to automatically configure 
(or reconfigure) Bro for you. It checks your system's BPF settings, 
creates a "bro" user account, installs a script to start Bro at boot time, 
installs the report generation package, and installs a number of cron jobs 
to checkpoint Bro every night, run periodic reports, and manage log files.

To run this configuration script type:


This script creates the file @file{$BROHOME/etc/bro.cfg}. bro_config will 
ask a number of simple questions. Note that the full functionality of this 
script is only supported under FreeBSD. Some additional configuration may 
need to be done by hand under Linux."
