Apologies for the documentation being so out of date, but the bro.rc has not been included in the 1.5 release.  If you want to just Bro as a normal program, you can run the bro binary directly.  If you want to run it as a daemon watching live traffic you will likely want to run it with BroControl.  Here are some docs for installing and running Bro with BroControl
