Bro 2.2 beta has an exec module.

redef exit_only_after_terminate = T;

@load base/utils/exec
event bro_init()
	when ( local result = Exec::run([$cmd="date"]) )
		print result;
	timeout 5secs
		print "Hm, it didn't return.";
-----end script-----

$ bro -b ./test-exec.bro 
[exit_code=0, signal_exit=F, stdout=[Wed Oct  2 14:59:02 EDT 2013], stderr=<uninitialized>, files=<uninitialized>]
