For BroControl it used to be 2.4 but that's apparently not the case
anymore if there are 2.5 constructs in there now. If it's easy to
eliminate things that prevent it from running with 2.4, we could do
that; but on the other hand I'm tempted to just say we require at
least 2.6. That's not exactly new anymore, and if people can't find
packages, it's actually straight-forward to compile from source (I've
done it many times :-)
