I've added the option, there is no difference. I did notice in the debug logs 
before that this option has been set by default. At startup i see the 
following for all workers, proxy and manager:


The bro binary does seem to use the correct lib:

$ ldd /opt/bro/bin/bro | grep pcap
libpcap.so.1 => /usr/local/lib/libpcap.so.1 (0x00007fae5cad2000)

I'll go ahead and do this again on monday, perhaps I did make a mistake during 
the build process.

Thanks, Machiel.
