[Bro] Bro 2.3 command line problem.

When running Bro 2.1 from the command line with this command:

   bro -r myPackets.pcap

all is well.

Trying the same thing from Bro 2.3:

  bro -r myPackets.pcap

results in:

   internal error: Broxygen can't get mtime of bro binary : No such file or directory

If, however, one uses this command:

   /home/myAccount/bro2.3/bin/bro -r myPackets.pcap

all is again OK.

Note that the /home/myAccount/bro2.3/bin directory is in my path, which was changed from the similar Bro 2.1 directory when Bro 2.3 was installed.  We're running  Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.10 (Tikanga).

FWIW, I set up an account on the JIRA Bro issue tracker page, and could not find the "Create a new ticket" button, so I post this here, instead.
