This error means that Bro cannot find the policy scripts. The  
environment variable $BROPATH should contain the path to your policy  
script directory and to all other custom directories that include  
policy script files:

% BRO_DIR="/path/to/bro"
% export BROPATH="${BRO_DIR}/policy:${BRO_DIR}/policy/local:${BRO_DIR}/
