Showing our setup to verify what Jon said.

On ubuntu (built for install in /opt):
root at host:# cat /etc/ld.so.conf.d/bro.conf

(don't forget to run ldconfig) after the bro.conf file

The other thing we did was add a .pth file to our python venv:
root at host:# cat /opt/python/venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages/bro.pth

> The default install prefix for broccoli if installed on its own is /usr/local.  But if broccoli is installed as part of the full bro package, the default install prefix is /usr/local/bro.  If you don’t see the shared library indicated in the error message in the lib subdir of either place, please give more details on how you configured/built/installed broccoli and the python bindings.

And that is typically resolved by either setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH env var or doing stuff with /etc/ld.so.conf and `ldconfig` if you’re on linux — the man pages for “ld-linux.so” and “ldconfig” are good to review here.
