That sounds right. Would you mind sharing the CAF ebuild with us?

The reason why this fails is because
caf/detail/abstract_uniform_type_info.hpp has been removed with the 0.14
releases. The current Broker release 0.4 does not support CAF 0.14.
Broker 0.4 requires CAF 0.13.2. However, the master branch of Broker
supports 0.14. 

We're currently in the process of porting Broker to 0.15, which Bro 2.5
will depend on. Sorry about the inconvenience.
