It looks like you are missing the setting that turns on the pf_ring clustering support.  If you built against the pf_ring libpcap wrapper it should have been put in there automatically (unless you installed over top of a previous installation?).

Add this to your broctl.cfg and do "check", "install", "restart" in broctl.
