 I think this is generally just a misconception of how configuring/building
 Bro as a monolithic project works.  When configuring Bro from the top-
 level directory, none of the configuration state is shared with sub-
 projects.  You need to either:

 1) execute the `make install` from the top-level directory to install
 broccoli again (it will also check if the other Bro components need to be
 2) configure/build broccoli as it's own independent package that points to
 the install prefix that you want (this is effectively what you were doing,
 but you didn't do a `./configure --prefix=...` so the default  was used)

 The default install prefix for broccoli could be changed to
 `/usr/local/bro` (or bro's changed to `/usr/local/`) to make them
 consistent, but I think they make sense the way they are.

 I'm going to close this, but anyone feel free to reopen with comments if
 you have them.
