I think this is getting closer.  But it throws an error at:

  -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/bro-2.0.20120309/image/var/opt/bro/spool/scripts
  -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/bro-2.0.20120309/image/var/opt/bro/logs
  ACCESS DENIED  symlink: /opt/bro/share/broctl/scripts/broctl-config.sh
  -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/bro-2.0.20120309/image///opt/bro/etc/broctl.cfg
  -- Installing: /var/tmp/portage/net-analyzer/bro-2.0.20120309/image///opt/bro/etc/networks.cfg

It looks like the command that's failing is:

  /usr/bin/cmake -E create_symlink /var/opt/bro/spool/broctl-config.sh /opt/bro/share/broctl/scripts/broctl-config.sh

That's in ./build/aux/broctl/cmake_install.cmake.  When I manually add
$ENV{DESTDIR} as a prefix for the destination and re-merge, it works
cleanly, and I end up with a sane-looking install--except that
/var/opt/bro/spool/broctl-config.sh does not exist, so the symlink at
/opt/bro/share/broctl/scripts/broctl-config.sh is dangling (could be a
side effect of my manual hack?)
