Hello,

Just take a look at the file "bro.cfg" and search for 

===
# Bro policy paths
BROPATH="/opt/share/bro-1.4/site:/opt/share/bro-1.4/share/bro:/opt/share/bro-1.4/share/bro/sigs:/opt/share/bro-1.4/share/bro/time-machine"
export BROPATH
===

Check that "hostname.bro" is in one of these directories, if not create
it.

Hope this will help.

With regards,

Jean-Philippe.
