[Bro] Issue compiling from source on VM / Digital Ocean

I noticed this started occurring with 2.5.x.  Attempting to make from source.  All dependencies met and following instructions from Digital Ocean.  Whether from a git clone or pulling the source files in manually, always leads to an internal compiler error.  System is Ubuntu 16.04, fully updated.

Additionally, when attempting to install from the opensuse repo, there is an umet dependency error.

I recall (not confirmed) that I attempted to build from source in a KVM guest on my own machine (at Brocon) and had the exact same compiler error.

Is there a new incompatibility with virtual systems?

Repo error
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
bro : Depends: bro-core (= 2.5.1-0) but it is not going to be installed
       Depends: broctl (= 2.5.1-0) but it is not going to be installed
