To make sure I understand what you mean: are you saying that you had
already policy files in /usr/local/bro/site which were now not found
anymore (in which case that's ok to require a BROPATH change
because, as you note, the standard location has changed); or are you
saying that the install process puts files into /usr/local/bro/site
which were then not found (in which case if would be a bug).

Yeah, I guess that would be good, except as that this fix will be
only temporary anyway so it's mostly for people already using

Thanks for the feedback!
