[Bro] broccoli not processing events

I am creating an application based on the broccoli test/broconn source.  It
seems when running the broconn example and the application I am writing
using bro versions 2.0 and 2.1, I can subscribe to "new_connection" events
and process them in a callback; everything is great.  But when using bro
version 2.3 there is no processing of the events sending them to the
callback.  This goes for the broconn example and my app.

The ping example does work for version 2.3 which is using custom events.

I can capture the client server traffic and see the 'new_connection' events
being passed back to the client but the client side code seems to not do
anything for bro v2.3, this goes for my app and the broconn example.

I was not able to try bro v2.2, when executing bro it would display a bunch
of warnings for magic files and the following message, then quit
"internal error: can't load magic file /usr/local/bro/share/bro/magic:
could not find any valid magic files!"

This is being on fedora 20 and arch linux, tried all versions of bro
(v2.0,2.1,2.2,2.3) using the src tarballs and the git repo.
