Hi there

I am new to Bro and the list so Greetings.

Some feedback as requested.  

I am installing on Slackware 10.2.0 (old I know) gcc version 3.3.6,
which was pretty straight forward although I have snort/libpcap etc
installed from source and a PF Ring kernel so it is far from a vanilla
Slackware.  I had done a 'manual' install of Bro 1.4 prior to patching
Bro for a BroLite install, I deleted and re-installed as I felt that I
had missed a few things which did turn out to be the case e.g the perl
reporting scripts.  

On patching and running "make install-brolite" all seems good 'out of
the box' except I had to add "/usr/local/bro/site" to BROPATH in
etc/bro.cfg, from my reading I gather this is likely due to a new
location of site to share/bro/site?  A suggestion, possibly a simple
'what goes where' or 'what is to be expected where' in the docs?
