I apologize if this message shows up twice.  I tried sending it to one
address indicated in some documentation, and then another address provided
as part of my confirmation to joining this list.

We are a group of students working on our fourth year project at the
 University of Calgary.  As part of our project, we need to install Bro on
 an Ubuntu system.  We are working with the current version of Ubuntu and

The error message looks as follows:

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/terminator/bro-1.4/aux'
/bin/chown -R 'cat scripts/bro_user_id' /usr/local/bro/
cat: scripts/bro_user_id: No such file or directory
/bin/chown: missing operand after '/usr/local/bro/'
Try '/bin/chown --help' for more information
make: [install-brolite] Error 1 (ignored)
Please run "/usr/local/bro/etc/bro.rc --start" to start bro

The file /usr/local/bro/etc/bro.rc also does not exist.  Any help you
 could offer would be very much appreciated.
