Sweet!  This looks like it's about 99% there: install completes without
error.  The main broctl.cfg, broccoli.conf, etc config files are
installed in /etc/.

However, it looks like scripts/site/local*.bro files are installed into

The other scripts/ dir (base/, policy/) contents are installed under
/opt/bro/share/bro/, which makes sense.  I'm not sure where the site/
files are supposed to go -- I guess any of /etc/bro/site/,
/var/opt/bro/site/, or even /opt/bro/share/bro/site/ would work.
