#729: Linux bro build failure after distclean
 Reporter:  amannb      |       Type:  Problem

Milestone:              |  Component:  Bro
  Version:  git/master  |   Keywords:
 When building bro on a linux box after either make distclean or a
 completely fresh checkout, the first "make install" will fail with an
 error. The error only occurs on the first "make install" directly after a
 make distclean / clean checkout for me. When doing "make" and "make
 install" seperately or doing "make install" for the second time everything
 works as intended.

 Furthermore, this error occurs only on Linux for me, on MacOs it works as

 Steps I took:

  make distclean && ./configure --prefix=/n/shokuji/db/bernhard/broinstall
 && make install

 Resulting error:

 When trying it a second time after this error (without make distclean), it
 works as intended.
