I believe that can be caused by an error in a script included before
that.  If a policy file is missing a trailing } or ; you will get that..

These files:

are generated from the various .cfg files (broctl, nodes, network..)

If you haven't installed any site local policies I would double check
that none of those .cfg files has anything weird in it.
